Even the shelters are flooding.

The catastrophic downpours in Port Arthur, Texas, have been so severe that a major shelter is becoming submerged — with shocking images showing waterlogged cots and evacuees cowering in the bleachers.

The photos by Beulah Johnson capture the nightmarish conditions at the Bowers Civic Center, which was inundated overnight, leaving the displaced residents wondering where they would end up next.

Some people were being moved to the Carl A. Parker Multipurpose Center.
