Freezing drizzle overnight spawned multiple car accidents Friday morning in and around Ottumwa. At approximately 5:30 this morning, first responders were called to Highway 63 near near Eddyville on reports of multiple vehicles in the ditch, one of which had rolled over. Scanner traffic indicated that nobody was injured in the accident. Not long after, dispatchers informed police of a minor car accident on Highway 34 near JBS Ottumwa.
Crews were called to North Graves Street at 1:37 this morning on reports of a fully involved shed fire. Differing fire reports describe the structure as a shed or a garage. Two cars were also destroyed in the fire. Crews spent more than two hours on scene extinguishing the fire and ensuring that it did not spread to a nearby home. They were called back to the scene several hours later after the fire rekindled.
A dry November has led to “abnormally dry” conditions returning to parts of the state. Tim Hall of the DNR compiles the water summary for the state. “We’ve had a consistent area in the southeast part of the state that’s been abnormally dry or even moderate drought, but northwest Iowa was out of the water for awhile — but it’s sort of crept back in. We had a very, very dry November, and it’s starting to draw parts of the state back into the picture,” Hall says.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
