Another Texas River Threatens To Overflow Its Banks

First it was the Wichita, then the Trinity and the Blanco. Now another Texas river threatens to overflow its banks in the next few days. From its beginning near the Texas panhandle, all the way to its mouth at the Gulf of Mexico, the Brazos (pronounced BRAH-suss) River is above its normal level and flowing fast.

Weeks of almost daily rain has led to flooding around the Lone Star State and the prospect of more severe weather over the weekend has emergency planners scrambling to get people living alongside the Brazos River out of harm’s way.
