Why does the Mississippi River flow east to west through the Quad Cities, instead of north to south?


On today's "Why, QC?" Renata Sago has the answer.
Support for "Why, QC" comes from the Doris and Victor Day Foundation. Making Rock Island and its surrounding community a better place since 1986. 

Renata Sago is WMFE's general assignment reporter and occasional Morning Edition anchor. She covers everything from major political campaigns and unemployment to civil rights legislation and the performing arts for WMFE and NPR.
