Most of the time, weather in Missouri is not very noteworthy. That is with the exception of the earthquake that ranked higher on the Richter Scale than any other earthquake in U.S. history. Surprised? Most people are shocked to hear that the most powerful quake in America occurred not in California but in Missouri. The 1812 earthquake centered in New Madrid, Missouri registered 8.0 on the Richter Scale. It was so powerful it made the Mississippi River run backwards for three days and caused church bells to ring as far away as Philadelphia. For a place known for mild weather, this was certainly one peculiarity.
