Swimmers at Galveston beaches are being warned to look out for jellyfish after the island's beach patrol reported 65 stings yesterday. The Galveston Daily News reports that the jellyfish arrival is tied to the ocean's current and wind pattern.

Officials say that although dozens of stings were reported yesterday, the number is not high enough to post a blue-flag jellyfish warning.
