That’s what many people with ties to Puerto Rico are going through right now. News 8 spoke with a man from Puerto Rico who is still trying to reach his loved ones there. Juan Ortiz moved to the U.S. just 3 months ago and now lives in New Britain. His mom is still in Puerto Rico, along with most of his family.
Related CoverageNEWINGTON/NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) – Like we’ve seen in Texas and Florida after Harvey and Irma, people want to help in times of crisis. That has been the case across Connecticut as Hurricane Maria devastates Puerto Rico. Danny Delgado works at WRYM Radio in Newington, which has broadcasts in Spanish. He’s been following Hurricane Maria, getting updates on TV, online and from people on the island. On Wednesday the radio station passed that information on to listeners all day long.
OLD SAYBROOK, Conn. (WTNH)–People along the shoreline are getting ready for whatever Hurricane Jose may bring. It was nice out by the water in Old Saybrook on Sunday afternoon, but that could be a very different story later this week. Marina staff and boat owners there are preparing for the storm’s effects, making sure all boats are tied down well. The marina would be evacuated if it looked like Connecticut would be hit by a hurricane, but at this point, there are no plans to do that.
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".
