A magnitude-6.4 earthquake rocked Taiwan on Tuesday, damaging buildings and roads, authorities said.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake was centered 13 miles north-northeast of Hualien, a city of more than 100,000 on Taiwan’s east coast. Photos and videos posted on social media show damaged roads and high-rise buildings.

Several buildings leaned drastically, collapsed or had their first floor crushed, the state-owned Focus Taiwan News Channel reported.

Military spokesman Chen Chung-chi told the news channel that 88 military members had been dispatched to aid the rescue missions, with 250 more expected to be sent soon.

The quake, at a depth of less than six miles, came two days after another strong temblor struck off Taiwan’s east coast.

Earthquakes are a fairly common occurrence in Taiwan, which sits on the boundary of two tectonic plates — the Philippine Sea Plate to the East and the Eurasian Plate.

The earthquake could be felt across Taiwan, Focus Taiwan News Channel reported





A hotel has collapsed after a shallow 6.4-magnitude earthquake rocked eastern Taiwan late Tuesday, US geologists said, the latest in a string of quakes to have hit the region in recent days.

The quake hit at 23:50 pm (1550 GMT) around 21 kilometres (13 miles) northeast of the port city Hualien, according to the United States Geological Survey.

The government confirmed that a hotel had collapsed, but no further details were immediately available. Emergency services are working to free anyone trapped inside the building, media reports said.

The island’s weather bureau recorded the quake as 6.0-magnitude.

On Sunday, another five shallow tremors struck within two hours of each other in the same area off Taiwan’s east coast.

Taiwan lies near the junction of two tectonic plates and is regularly hit by earthquakes.

The island’s worst tremor in recent decades was a 7.6-magnitude quake in September 1999 that killed around 2,400 people.

Thank you for tuning into The Grand Solar Minimum Channel with Jake & Mari from WTFSKY. We look at the big picture to show society that we are indeed going into a Grand Solar Minimum. ( Eddy Minimum ) similar to the last Maunder Minimum

We discuss the different FACTS coming from multiple sources from around the world. We interview people behind the science of the Grand Solar Minimum like Valentina Zharkova, Rolf Witszche and John Casey. We strive for society to gain awareness of the changes that are taking place.

Our climate is changing and we as a human race need to make a shift and ADAPT to these changes weather we go into an ice age or not. We report on EXTREME WEATHER, Volcanos, Earthquakes Space News & Weather. We discuss atmospheric phenomena, charged particles, sun halos etc.

We give Solar updates, track TSI, the Magnetosphere, discuss sustainable living, growing nutritionally rich foods and much more!
