Not only is the overflowing Brazos River causing traffic problems across the area, it's also causing a Houston area prison to be evacuated.

The Ramsey Unit in Rosharon houses thousands of inmates. All of them are being sent by bus to other prisons that have available space.

Authorities say they've delivered additional food and water to those prisons for the displaced inmates.

In case those prisons flood too, they're setting up sandbags to try and minimize damage.
