More than 3,000 Texas prison inmates bused from Houston-area units to escape Hurricane Harvey-related flooding have been returned to their original lockups.

Texas Department of Criminal Justice spokesman Jason Clark says inmates were returned to units, in Brazoria County, after relocating to other prisons.

Clark says the repopulation of about 3,300 inmates was completed Saturday night.
