WINNSBORO - People in Winnsboro woke up to an apartment complex without a ceiling. The winds powerful enough to rip the roof off. For Norma Henson, she said she's lucky. Henson recently moved out and said it was only minutes before the storm struck. "I never thought it would happen here," Henson said. "I just keep thinking what if I was there when this came through?" Not everyone was as fortunate as Henson.
SMITH COUNTY - Bob Davis took in a stray dog, nurtured him back to health but expressed how he doesn't want to get attached. He said it's not good for dogs to live in his neighborhood. Davis used to have a family of dogs; Babe, Dude and Davey. "Babe would never leave the house," Davis said. "Dude, I'd take him for a walk, he was always on a leash." Unfortunately, Babe and Dude are dead. Davis said someone poisoned them. Dr. Gary Spence, a veterinarian in Tyler, said it was anti-freeze.
LONGVIEW - It wasn't just snow that was all around Longview; it came with a bone chilling, icy condition. Temperatures in Longview were below freezing and usually weather like that keeps people indoors. John Silos is looking to run a collective total of 1,000 miles and he was out running during the storm. "It's actually a lot better than the warm weather," Silos chuckled. "It actually feels warmer to me." The weather that morning felt as if it was 13 degrees and that's far below freezing.
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".
