But some homeowners in Bridge City are returning to find a new kind of unwanted catch -- jellyfish. Jay Braydon says he found jellyfish in his pool.

He says a neighbor's pool also was infested with jellyfish, which are known for stinging humans in more beach-like surroundings.

The cleanup continues from Ike, which hit Galveston and swamped other parts of Southeast Texas on Sept. 13.
