Tropical Storm Edouard packed 65 mph winds as it made landfall Tuesday morning on the upper Texas Gulf Coast near Galveston, according to the National Hurricane Center.

The fifth named storm of the season was expected to weaken as it moved inland later today.

Edouard could dump up to 10 inches of rain over portions of southeastern Texas, an area hard hit by a recent drought.

If anyone is keeping track, the next name on the 2008 storm list is Fay.

For now, all is quiet on the tropical front.
