(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.

We are waking up to some patchy fog this Monday morning. The weather does quiet down to begin the work week but temperatures will be heating up as we go into Monday and Tuesday.
