Tropical Storm Edouard is hitting the Texas Gulf coast east of Galveston with strong winds and rain.

It's expected to weaken as it makes its way inland during the day Tuesday.

The National Hurricane Center says the storm came ashore Tuesday morning over a stretch of coast east of Galveston and west of the Louisiana border, between High Island and Sabine Pass.

Maximum sustained winds were 65 miles per hour, short of hurricane strength that starts at 74.

A tropical storm warning is in effect from Grand Isle, Louisiana, westward to Sargent in Texas. A hurricane watch is in effect from west of Intracoastal City, Louisiana, to Sargent.

The tropical storm warning and hurricane watch have been discontinued for areas south of Sargent.
