Before, during and after Hurricane Irma, Volusia County Councilwoman Heather Post toured the community and assisted in well-being checks, she told the Observer. "I'm JUST NOW headed home to get some sleep," she wrote in a Facebook message. "We are very fortunate to have made it through with minimal damage and injury. I'm so proud of everyone that worked together to coordinate efforts and of the many still working diligently to restore services."
While many residents have taken to the roadways to head north away from Hurricane Irma, some Floridians are planning to ride out the storm from home. One of those residents is Cheryl Brugna who is braving Irma in Ormond Beach with her family at their home on Hunters Ridge. The mother of three and her husband Christopher had originally planned to head to Georgia and wait out the storm at a hotel. The Brugnas bought their house in Ormond about four months ago after living in Palm Coast for 13 years.
Ormond Beach city officials have announced there will be cancellations to trash pickup due to Hurricane Irma. According to the city, trash collection for Monday, Sept. 11, have been cancelled. Monday’s collection will occur on Tuesday, Sept. 12, and Tuesday’s collection will occur on Wednesday, Sept. 13. There will be no yard waste pickup on Wednesday.

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".
