|Medical & Disasters||| Print ||
St. Louis has had its share of medical and natural disasters. Tornados have hit the city numerous times including 1896, 1957, and 1967. A huge fire burned most of downtown in 1849. As recently as 1993, the Mississippi and the Missouri Rivers, as well as their tributaries, flooded vast areas of the metropolitan St. Louis area. Lives were lost in all of these events.
