West Coast of Quextin Region
In 1482, a group of explores from Brendinia, Xinnia Planet, came across a a moderate sized island, naming it Quextin, after famous explorer Charles Quextin. They settles on the east coast of the island, unknowingly settling on a ticking-time bomb. They named their settlement Pierra, after Pierra IV, the boat they used to travel to Quextin.
Pierra is nestled a few miles in front of the largest mountain range in Quextin, the Vihays. Other then that, the highest point in the city is Mount. Neargo, 2,932 ft. Pierra faces the Aldera Ocean. Trading with other countries is crucial, as the city is land locked. That's why the city is ranked the 3rd busiest port city on Xinnia.
Pierra has had a history of both hurricanes and severe thunderstorms. The city has been hit by two Historic tornadoes, both rated EF5. Once on April 31, 2001, and October 5, 2012. The city has also been hit by multiple strong tropical cyclones, and many more non-violent cyclones. The worst being Cyclone Christopher, in 2008.
