Update: Tropical Storm Eduoard Makes Landfall
Update, 11 p.m. EDT -- Edouard has been downgraded to a tropical depression and has moved inland. This will be our last report on this storm.

Tropical Storm Edouard made landfall this morning on the Texas coast, according to the National Hurricane Center, east of Galveston and west of the Louisiana border.

A tropical storm warning remains in effect from Grand Isle, Louisiana, to Sargent, Texas. A hurricane watch remains in effect from west of Intracoastal City, Louisiana, to Sargent, Texas. Maximum sustained winds are currently being clocked at about 65 miles per hour, and the storm is expected to weaken as it continues its west-northwestward trek over land.

At this point, forecasters do not expect Edouard to impact Galveston with winds and rain as heavy as those Dolly brought to Texas' San Padre Island last month.

Carnival Cruise Lines' Carnival Ecstasy and Carnival Conquest homeport in Galveston; the line's next scheduled turnaround at the port is with Ecstasy this Saturday. Thus far, no itinerary changes have been announced due to Edouard. We'll keep you posted.
