Question about English (US)

What does Floods ravaged the Midwest in 1993 as the confluence of the Missouri and this river moved 19 miles upstream mean?

This is a question in Jeopardy Quiz Show.

I checked wiki, but I don't understand "a river moved 19 miles upstream."
If this is written, for instance "the river moved 19 miles to the north," I think I got the picture, but "upstream"? Rivers flow from upstream; but do they move upstream?
