The strongest tremor to hit the island in at least 25 years sparked a tsunami warning for southern Japan and the Philippines that was later lifted. Taiwan television stations showed footage of buildings at precarious angles in Hualien, where the quake struck just offshore around 5.30 am IST as people were going to work and school. The quake had a depth of 15.5 km, according to Taiwan’s Central Weather Administration.

Taiwan’s official central news agency said the quake was the biggest to hit the island since 1999 when a 7.6 magnitude tremor killed around 2,400 people and destroyed or damaged 50,000 buildings in one of Taiwan’s worst-recorded quakes. Taiwan’s Central Weather Administration said the earthquake registered the second-highest intensity of an “Upper 6” in Hualien county, on the 1-7 intensity scale.
