Edouard now depression after drenching Texas coast

Posted: Updated:

GALVESTON, Texas (AP) -- The National Hurricane Center says Edouard has been downgraded to a tropical depression as it moves inland across eastern Texas and western Louisiana.

Coastal tropical storm warnings were canceled after Edouard made landfall Tuesday morning east of Galveston.

The storm kicked up heavy surf and drenched tourists visiting during the height of the summer season, but there were no reports of major damage or flooding.

On Tuesday afternoon the storm's center was about 35 miles north-northeast of Houston, moving about 9 mph with 35-mph sustained winds.

Forecasters say the storm's remnants could produce 3 to 5 inches of rain across eastern Texas and Louisiana, with up to 10 inches possible in isolated spots.

They also warned that it could produce spinoff tornadoes.
