TAIWAN: Buildings in Taipei trembled briefly on June 20 after a 6.0 magnitude earthquake struck Taiwan’s eastern coast, but no damage was reported.
According to the meteorology office, the quake had a depth of 6.8 kilometres and its epicentre was in Hualien county, a remote area of the island.
It was reported that the quake was felt throughout Taiwan.
Taiwan is located at the crossroads of two tectonic plates, making it vulnerable to earthquakes.
A quake in southern Taiwan killed more than a hundred people back in 2016, while a 7.3 magnitude quake killed more than two thousand people in 1999.
