Bear Creek overflow causes evacuation

Bear Creek rising

Residents in Hannibal were asked to evacuate due to Bear Creek flooding.

Those living south of Warren Barrett Drive were asked to evacuate after yards, roads and parks were flooded with water from Bear Creek Thursday morning.

Roads south of Warren Barrett were shut down because they were covered with overspill.

Debris floated down stream at a rapid pace with the rising waters.

Some residents made the decision to stay and fight the waters themselves.
