The Bell County Sheriff's Office said that the Bell County Expo Center will be taking evacuees from South Texas.

They had previously said that they were only accepting evacuees from Brazoria County, but they are now able to take anyone who needs help.

Around 1,000 evacuees arrived at the Bell County Expo Center from Brazoria County on Monday morning. The evacuees were delayed due to flooding in Houston, deputies said. 

Bell County has about 500 places for evacuees from South Texas to stay.
