-Cadaver dogs go to certain areas for the first time today. Maybe in Chambers County, but I'm not sure. The story only received a mention on the news, and they haven't come back to it.
-Chambers County received as much damage as Galveston County, but didn't receive FEMA aid until yesterday, despite FEMA's claim to the contrary.
-Many communities still without power.
-Residents not allowed to return to Galveston yet, but the mayor of Jamaica Beach - a town on the west end - lets his residents "look and leave" this morning. Big story because he does this "against the wishes of Galveston officials."

ETA: Just announced - Citizens of Galveston may return to the island beginning Wednesday at 6:00 a.m. The west end must look and leave, but the area behind the seawall may stay. Curfew from 6:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. will be strictly enforced.

First detailed shots of the city being broadcast beside press conference on Channel 13. Closeups by helicopter. Why such a long wait for these images?
