A 6.8 magnitude earthquake hit southeastern Taiwan on Sunday, collapsing a three-story building and derailing a passenger train, amongst other damage. Taiwan has been hit by several earthquakes since Saturday evening.
There has been one reported death. A man died after equipment fell on him while working at a cement factory in Yuli, a city of about 25,000 residents.
More than 7,000 households in Yuli were reported to have lost power.
“There is a possibility of aftershocks in the future,” said President Tsai Ing-wen. “I would like to appeal to the people of Taiwan to remain vigilant.”
The relief teams will inspect various roads, bridges, hydropower and water supply pipes for damage following the earthquake. A fire department in Taiwan reported that it saved four people who were in a convenience store that collapsed.
Tsunami warnings have now passed, the U.S. Geological Survey reported. Japan has also lifted its tsunami warning.
