TAIWAN has been hit by a second strong earthquake just a day after at least seven people were killed by a quake near the city of Hualien.

Wed, Feb 7, 2018

Today a 5.7 quake has hit the east coast of the island, disrupting search and rescue efforts for survivors of yesterday’s 6.4 Taiwan earthquake.

As many as 60 people are still missing after a number of buildings collapsed or tilted over in the resort town.

Today’s quake has once again caused panic on the heavily-populated Asian island.

Testimonies have been left on earthquake monitoring website EMSC-CSEM by witnesses.

One said: “It seems unusual to have this many strong tremors in such a short time.”

Another said: “Feel dizzy, it lasted for almost one minute.”

The earthquake stuck at 11.21pm local time (3.21pm GMT).

This is a breaking story, more to follow…
