Steel Buildings in MISSOURI

Missouri Metal Buildings for Tornadoes and Earthquakes in the ‘Show-Me’ State

From cotton fields and cornfields, to aerospace and automobile industries, Missouri embraces the best of rural and urban lifestyles.

Steel Buildings MissouriUnfortunately, as a part of the infamous Tornado Alley, Missouri has experienced some of the worst tornado disasters in U.S. history.

A tornado hit St. Louis in 1896, killing 255. The Tri-State Tornado of 1925 shredded southern Missouri before cutting a swath of destruction across Illinois and Indiana, killing 747 people. In 2011, a violent tornado destroyed Joplin, Missouri, killing 162 people and affecting 17,000 others. Currently, Joplin is still rebuilding.

RHINO’s prefabricated steel buildings for Missouri meet or exceed all local building codes. Overhead doors with higher wind resistance are also available.

Steel Buildings in Missouri for the Largest Earthquake in U.S. History

Generally, people think of the West coast when they think of earthquakes. Surprisingly, the worst series of earthquakes in American history centered around New Madrid, Missouri in 1811 and 1812.

The U.S. Geological Survey estimates three of the quakes would measure from 7.5 to 7.7 on the modern Richter scale. One quake was so strong, it was felt 1,000 miles away, awakening people as far away as New York, Washington, D.C., and Charleston, South Carolina. It reportedly rang church bells in Boston. The quakes caused waves on the Mississippi River so large that boats were capsized or swept inland.

Two hundred years later, a similar earthquake would be far more devastating, as the area is now heavily populated and urbanized.
