A two-story residential building collapsed not far from the epicenter of the earthquake, according to Taiwanese media. There were also earthquakes in Taipei, on the island’s northernmost point. The quake, according to the USGS, occurred just one day after a 6.5-magnitude quake.

A tsunami warning has been issued by the Japan Meteorological Agency in response to the Taiwan earthquake. Residents of these places have been cautioned by weather officials to avoid going to the beach.

It is reported that until an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.0, this island does not issue a tsunami warning. According to the agency, the first waves hit close to Yonaguni, the westernmost island of Japan, which is located around 250 kilometers (150 miles) northeast of Taitung. At 4:10 PM, these waves can reach Taiwan.

A frequent earthquake occurs in Taiwan because it lies at the convergence of two tectonic plates. There was news of an earthquake on Saturday in Taiwan’s eastern coastal region. However, this 6.6-magnitude earthquake caused no injuries or property damage. The US Geological Survey reports that the earthquake struck at about 9:30 pm, about 50 kilometers from Taitung, a seaside town in the north. In terms of depth, its center was ten kilometers deep. The earthquake’s depth was 7.3 kilometers, and its magnitude was 6.4, according to Taiwan’s Central Weather Bureau.
