"I can confirm that some of our health facilities in Durban have been adversely affected by this storm that is battering the coast today. These facilities include Prince Mshiyeni, Kind Edward, Wentworth, Addington and King Dinizulu hospital. Employees and management at these facilities are doing all that they can to ensure patient cared," he says. The heavy rain has meant all hands on deck for emergency services in eThekwini.
(TNS) -- FLAGLER BEACH — Anyone who wonders how self-driving cars will be able to react instantly to surrounding conditions will soon get an answer: antennas mounted atop municipal utility poles. The Flagler Beach City Commission last week approved an ordinance on first reading that will give city officials some say over how and where the new 5G antennas may be placed in accordance with a recent state law that paves the way for such technology. Local control is limited, however.

PALM COAST — After serving in the U.S. Navy during the Vietnam War, George Platt faithfully wore his identification tag — informally known as a "dog tag." Like every other member of the military, he was originally issued two but at some point one went missing. The other one, however, was always with him throughout most of his adult life.
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".
