When did the mississippi river flow backwards?

1 Answer

The storm surge ahead of Hurricane Isaac made the Mississippi River run backwards for 24 hours. But it is not just extreme weather that can cause the effect; an earthquake near the New Madrid fault in Missouri in 1812 also reversed the river's flow for several hours.
