Iowa City has it going on, from the University of Iowa to the Art Museum to Plum Grove, which is the home of the state's first governor; this city is more than cornfields and covered bridges. It's become a very modern and progressive place to live and work. Forbes Magazine named Iowa City the one of the best metropolitan areas to do business in, and it's now the fifth largest city in Iowa.Weather events have put Iowa City on the map in the last decade. In April of 2006, the first tornado to ever hit the city directly touched down, causing property damage all over town and crushing the roof of Saint Patrick's Catholic Church, which had been around for 134 years. Then in 2008, the Iowa River flooded, bringing unprecedented water damage to the community and driving the Coralville Reservoir over its emergency spillway.
