Strong earthquake hits southeast Taiwan, no damage reported

A strong 6.4-magnitude earthquake struck southeast Taiwan on Saturday, but there were no immediate reports of damage.

The Taiwan Meteorological Bureau said the quake had a depth of 7.3 km (4.5 mi), with its epicenter in Taitung County, a sparsely populated part of the island.

Tremors of the earthquake were felt across Taiwan. Buildings shook briefly in the capital, Taipei.

Taiwan’s fire department said it had not yet received any reports of damage. Taiwan is located near the junction of two tectonic plates and is prone to earthquakes.

More than 100 people were killed in a 2016 earthquake in southern Taiwan, while a 7.3-magnitude earthquake in 1999 killed more than 2,000.
