Ike sends jellyfish to some pools in SE Texas

Hurricane Ike's storm surge in Southeast Texas pushed fish and other seaworthy creatures out of their normal habitat.

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.
