President Donald Trump approved disaster assistance from FEMA for residents in the counties of Chatham, Camden and Glynn who were all affected by Hurricane Irma. You can do three things, go to their website, download their app or call the FEMA customer service number at 1.800.621.3362. If you do have damage, FEMA says you call your insurance. But before fixing your home you should document the damage by taking pictures.
The Bull River Bridge is open and Tybee residents are returning to the island to clean up after Hurricane Irma flood damage. Residents told WTOC they're not seeing a lot of structural damage but it’s the flood damage that they're seeing outside and the water damage inside their homes. "It’s a total loss as far as furniture goes. Today, we will clean everything out of the house and start cutting the walls out.
At this time, there is not an evacuation process going on at the Civic Center in Savannah. However, the county is picking up those who registered for the special needs and medical registry from their homes. We spoke with CEMA on Friday after they said people were showing up to the Civic Center. Services will start Saturday morning for the general population. Anyone pre-registered who is getting picked up on Friday at their homes will be taken to a staging area to get them to Augusta.
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".
