The National Weather Service reports the greatest risk of flash floods in the Eagle Creek fire area will be Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. Heavier showers during the day on Tuesday could cause issues as well. Both the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area and the Mt. Hood National Forest have issued signed closure orders for areas within and surrounding the Eagle Creek Fire. Do not attempt to enter a closed area.
If Tuesday morning's commute mirrors Monday's we'll see several spin out crashes caused by slick conditions due to wet road. It's been more than 90 days since Portland saw wet streets during a regular commute day and crashes on area on and off ramps and main freeways caused delays all day on Monday. So far for Tuesday, U.S. 26 westbound had a spin out crash outside the Vista Ridge Tunnel prior to 5 a.m. Fingers crossed that's all we'll see for the morning. Check back here for updates.
The first in a serious of rainy systems moved through Sunday and Sunday night offering up a good dose of rain, especially in and around the Cascades. The second round arrives late Monday afternoon or Monday evening bringing more wind and rain. Daytime hours on Monday will bring a shower or two and possibly a thunderstorm. High of 61. Tuesday looks much the same with a high of 62 and showers throughout the day.
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".
