      It's not unusual for a river to flow north and that doesn't mean it's running "backwards." It's just doing what water does; going downhill.

On this day in , the most violent of a series of earthquakes near Missouri causes a so-called fluvial tsunami in the Mississippi River, actually making the river run backward for several hours. The series of tremors, which took place between December and March , were the most powerful in the history of the United States.
