The Media vs. Tropical Storm Edouard

Tropical Storm Edouard struck the upper Texas coast on Tuesday August 4th, with sustained winds of 65 mph, a bit below hurricane strength.  So it was not by any stretch of the imagination a major storm.  But that didn’t stop reporters from across the country from gathering in Galveston to document the storm’s arrival.

One of our co-workers at NBC5 just happened to be vacationing in Galveston that week with his family.  When he got back in town, Steve Lemonds sent me the following email and attached photograph.

I was in Galveston during the Eduardo Hurricane scare. There was little rain and small amounts of wind. Yet, the media was in full effect. I counted 20 News vans lined up along the coast. They really had little to say once the drizzle hit the shore. I did find this humorous though. A sign in front of the popular restaurant read, “Eduardo Category 1, Media Coverage Category 5”

I got a real chuckle out of that.
