A 6.8-magnitude earthquake strikes Taiwan.
Taiwan has just been hit by a 6.8-magnitude earthquake at a depth of less than 10km. It struck 85km east of Yujing, Taiwan.
The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might still be changed again later on as seismologists review their data and calculations, or else as other agencies issue their own reports.
The earthquake was felt by everyone in Taiwan. Those on the east of the country felt the earthquake as strong shaking. It comes a day after the country was hit by a 6.5-magnitude earthquake. A tsunami alert has been issued.
