Tornado Warnings Have Been Issued the Most By These National Weather Service Offices in 2014
As the Florida Keys took stock of the widespread damage and worked to rescue those still trapped on the islands, video posted to social media by one storm chaser showed damage to a famous Key West icon. Storm chaser Mike Theiss's video showed one side of the "Southernmost Point" buoy with damage as he made it to the landmark Monday afternoon. The Keys suffered widespread severe damage from Hurricane Irma as the powerful storm made landfall Sunday morning on Cudjoe Key.
Story Highlights Nearly a half-million homes and businesses are without power as Hurricane Irma nears the Florida Keys. Some 400 shelters are open across the state as residents shelter from the massive storm. Roughly one-third of Florida's population evacuated ahead of the storm, according to officials. As Hurricane Irma's devastating blow to Florida's southernmost point worsened Sunday morning, officials warned anyone who stayed that they were on their own until the storm's impacts waned.
Story Highlights South Carolina ordered evacuations of Hilton Head Island and six other barrier islands. Mandatory evacuations were ordered for the Georgia coast; they will go into effect on Saturday. States of emergency have been declared for coastal areas of Georgia and the Carolinas ahead of Hurricane Irma. Preparations continue in Georgia as deadly Hurricane Irma draws closer to the United States.
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".
