Information About Iowa
Iowa is a state in the US which is located in the midwest, which is bordered by the Missouri River, the Mississippi River, the Big Sioux River. Surrounding states are Minnesota, Nebraska, Missouri and South Dakota. Iowa is the only state whose west and east borders are formed solely by rivers.
The land of Iowa is used primarily for agriculture, with crops covering approximately 60% of the state. The recent expansion of high density livestock facilities has led to some rural water contamination and air quality issues. Iowa is a humid climate with extremes of both cold and heat. Spring brings about a severe weather season with an average of 47 tornadoes a year and 50 thunderstorms per year. Summers are often quite hot and humid and winters are known to drop below -18 degrees fahrenheit.
American Indians called Iowa their home over 13,000 years ago, living in a Pleistocene glacial landscape. When European explorers arrived, they saw that the indians were settled farmers with social, economic and political systems in place. The US settlement of the east side of the Mississippi led to trade in furs and lead, and forced population resulted in the decimation of indian economy and culture.
The most populous city in Iowa, which is also the capital city, is Des Moines. The second most populous city in Des Moines is Cedar Rapids. Cedar Rapids is home to two historic floods in the 21st century. Iowa is nicknamed the Hawkeye State in tribute to Chief Black Hawk. The flag and seal of the state contain a soldier, eagle, and natural resources including lead.
Throughout the 21st century, Cedar Rapids, Iowa was plagued with major flooding. In June 2008, the city was devastated by flood waters that reached nearly 10 meters. In September of 2016, Hurricane Paine caused extensive flooding in Cedar Rapids. Iowa is considered one of the safest states to live in. President Herbert Hoover, serving between 1929 and 1931 during the Great Depression, was born in Iowa.
