Here comes the hurricane bride. Hurricane Irma is already on the path towards destruction in Florida, but the Category 5 storm isn’t stopping one couple from walking down the aisle. Tom Mercurio’s daughter is supposed to get married Saturday in Clearwater and the father-of-the-bride says the wedding will go on — despite life-threatening storm surges and wind impacts predicted for the entire state. “Aunt Irma is not invited,” he told the Associated Press.
A quick theft turned into a quickie for a pair of randy robbers in Florida who stopped to have sex while stealing a trailer. A man was caught in the act with his thieving companion on surveillance moments before lifting a trailer from a pool company in Cooper City. The Broward Sheriff’s office said the bandits arrived at Twin Lakes Pool & BBQ in a silver pickup truck on July 27. But before swiping the $1,200 trailer, they engaged in sexual activity for a few minutes while parked in the lot.
A Missouri man was arrested for throwing rocks from a rooftop because he thought “The Purge” was about to happen, police said. Jeremy A. Perkins, 27, admitted to Kansas City Police that he had done methamphetamine before the incident on Saturday, according to WDAF.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
