Geography and Climate
Central Taqmery is located just inland from the Northern Coast, the Taqsim Bay. Taqmery sits just downriver from the mouth of Taq River, from where the Taqsim Bay gains its name. The city is located on an active tectonic area, and several small to medium earthquakes and tremors have been recorded in recent years, however no devastating earthquakes have hit the city for hundreds of years, leading many to believe that a large devastating earthqauke may occur in the next hundred years.
Taqmery has long, hot and dry summers lasting from May to late September, with the Mediterranian Climate dictating its weather patterns. While the Winters can be relatively cold, while snow is a very rare occurance, however frost is a regular occurance during the short winters. Most of the cities rainfall comes in the Spring, and the river Taq can often be very low during the Summer months.
