On Thursday a strong earthquake hit eastern Taiwan, shaking the country over a wide area including the capital, Taipei, where buildings swayed for more than 10 seconds, and startled residents ran for cover. There were no immediate reports of serious damage or casualties.

The U.S. Geological Survey said this Taiwan earthquake had a magnitude 6.6 on the Richter Scale and struck in the evening. It’s center was in a remote mountainous area 28 miles south-southwest of the coastal city of Hualian at a depth of just 5.8 miles.

Local TV channels reported that there appeared to be almost no damage in Hualian. However, it usually takes time for the full impact of the quake to be evaluated because the epicenter was in a remote place.
