Taiwan 7.7 Earthquake: Buildings Collapse After Strongest Quake in 25 Years; Japan Lifts Tsunami Warnings

Taiwan 7.7 magnitude earthquake: seven dead and hundreds injured amid landslides and collapsed buildings


People rescued from buildings in cities of Hualien and Taipei amid continuing aftershocks from Taiwan’s strongest quake in decades


The Guardian 3 APR 2024











Taiwan’s strongest earthquake in 25 years has killed seven and injured at least 700, causing building collapses, power outages and landslides on the island, and sparking initial tsunami warnings in southern Japan and the Philippines.



The quake, given a magnitude of 7.7 by Japan’s meteorological agency, struck close to the popular tourist city of Hualien, on Taiwan’s eastern coast, damaging buildings and trapping people amid aftershocks following the quake, which started at 7.58am.

Videos on social media showed children being rescued from collapsed residential buildings. One five-storey building in Hualien appeared heavily damaged, its first floor collapsed and the bulk of the building leaning at a 45-degree angle.

Taiwan’s Centre for Science and Technology (CST) said people and vehicles were trapped in the Dachingshui tunnel. Train lines were also damaged, and schools and workplaces were closed across large areas of the city.

Witnesses in Hualien described driving while rocks dislodged from nearby mountains fell down around them, while others rushed outside after feeling the strength of the tremors.

Further north, part of the headland of Guishan Island, a tourist attraction also known as Turtle Island because of its shape, slid into the sea. In the capital, Taipei, several people were rescued from a partially collapsed warehouse, and tiles fell from buildings.

Although it was measured at 7.7 in Japan, Taiwan’s earthquake monitoring agency gave the magnitude of Wednesday’s quake as 7.2, making it Taiwan’s strongest since 1999, when a 7.6-magnitude quake 93 miles (150 km) south of Taipei killed 2,400 and injured 10,000.

Hualien’s last big quake was in 2022, when a 6.9-magnitude tremblor toppled buildings and derailed a train, killing one person and cutting off power for thousands of residents.
Wednesday’s quake caused TSMC, Taiwan’s leading semiconductor manufacturer, that is responsible for the production of most of the world’s advanced semiconductors, to evacuate its production lines

Taiwan Earthquake: 70 Miners Trapped Underground After Horror 7.4-Scale Quake

Nine were killed and hundreds more injured in the 7.2-magnitude earthquake when it rocked off the coast of Taiwans' mountainous Hualien County in the early hours of this morning (GMT)


MailOnline 4 APR 2024








At least 70 miners are trapped in a cave in Taiwan following the strongest earthquake in a quarter-century.



The 7.7-magnitude quake rocked the country during Wednesday's morning rush hour, killing nine and sending others scrambling from the windows of damaged buildings.

Train services were brought to a halt across the island as a tsunami warning of three-metre-high waves was also triggered.
The quake, which also injured hundreds, was centred off the coast of rural, mountainous Hualien County, where some buildings leaned at severe angles, their ground floors crushed. Just over 93 miles away in the capital of Taipei, tiles fell from older buildings, and schools evacuated their students to sports fields, equipping them with yellow safety helmets.

Some children covered themselves with textbooks to guard against falling objects as aftershocks continued.

Taiwanese authorities later confirmed that 70 miners had become trapped in two coal mines. The vast majority, sixty-four of them, are said to have been trapped in one mine, while another six were trapped at a separate location, according to Taiwan's National Fire Agency.
