TX. Gulf Coast shore. Edourad blew in,

out, and most residents and tourists
were unfazed.



(SOT: MOS) "PRETTY OVERHYPED, DIDN'T


LIVE UP TO ITS EXPECTATIONS."



The storm crashed ashore near Galveston
Tuesday morning dumping heavy rain and


wind before losing steam inland.
While the rains and high tide
contributed


to some flooding, it was wasn't as
bad as officials first feared.



Edouard drenched tourists visiting


during the height of the summer


season...but by the afternoon some
who stayed in town were already back on


the beach.



(SOT: MOS) "WE STARTED TALKING TO THE


LOCALS AND THEY SAID THEY'RE MAKING TOO


MUCH OF THIS AND GO FIND YOURSELF A
HOTEL ROOM AND RIDE IT OUT."



Things were worse in Louisiana. Those
in some low-lying areas were ordered


to evacuate, wind tore a handful of
mobile homes apart, and power lines
were


knocked down,



But in Galveston--



WE HAD SOME GOOD WINDS AND MUCH NEEDED
RAIN BUT THAT'S ABOUT IT, NOT A LOT


OF DAMAGE.



BRIDGE: Kathryn Brown/Galveston, TX


THOUGH EDOUARD DIDN'T DELIVER A
HURRICANE-STRENGTH STORM....BUSINESS
OWNERS


ALONG THE COAST STILL TOOK A BEATING


--- RIGHT AT THE PEAK OF THE TOURISM


SEASON.



"ALL OF OUR CUSTOMERS THAT ARE HERE
LEAVE AND ALL THE PEOPLE THINKING ABOUT


COMING DOWN DON'T."



But Edouard didn't strike with the same
force as Dolly. That storm barreled


through South Padre Island less than
two weeks ago.



4148 (SOT: Steve LeBlanc, Galveston


City Manager) "ALL IN ALL I THINK WE
WERE


VERY FORTUNATE."



But the coast isn't clear just yet.
Though the rain was much-needed,


forecasters say Edouard's remnants
could drop up to ten inches of rain
which


could lead to even more flooding.

They cool themselves by panting.


Unlike humans they don't adjust

why it's important for pet owners to

discovery "astonishing."


CHANNEL=A VO-NAT


VO-NAT Researchers say they've found


125-thousand Western lowland gorillas,
living in swamplands in the Republic of


Congo.


The last census of the critically
endangered species estimated there were
just 100-thousand worldwide.


Teams from the Wildlife
Conservation Society acted on a tip
from Congolese hunters, and trekked
days on foot to a remote nature
reserve.


They spotted some gorillas there,
but based their estimate of
125-thousand from a number of gorilla
nests at the site.


Researchers say it's the
highest-known density of gorillas ever
found.
