(CRAIG, Mo.) A mandatory evacuation has been issued for Craig due to flooding.

The city issued the evacuation order Wednesday morning.

"There are a lot of people, they can't take this anymore," Craig mayor Rhonda Hunziger said.

The evacuation was ordered due to concerns from flooding of multiple roads around the town including a new concern of the Little Tarkio River potentially flooding east of town. 

Parts of northwest Missouri saw between 2-4 inches of rain last night.
