(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 have had rain off and on this Saturday across northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri. Scattered showers will continue off and on through the evening and overnight hours but should start to clear up as we head towards the morning. Temperatures will slowly start to warm Sunday into Monday as sunshine returns and conditions start to dry out. Another cold front is headed our way Monday night and that will bring us a chance for rain and possibly some snow into Tuesday morning as the colder air surges into our area. Temperatures look to stay unseasonably cool through the rest of the next week.
