Update: Edouard Makes Lone Star Landfall

Tropical Storm Edouard slammed on shore along the north Texas coast (in McFaddin National Wildlife Refuge) around 7 a.m. this morning with peak winds of 65 mph. The main impact from Edouard will be rain in parts of drought-plagued east Texas, so the storm will probably end up being beneficial, although isolated tornadoes and straight-line wind damage are possible in a few areas.

For the best coverage of Edouard I've encountered, check out the Houston Chronicle's SciGuy Blog.
