Taiwan was hit by its strongest tremors in 25 years, according to its chief seismologist

A magnitude 7.2 earthquake struck off the eastern coast of Taiwan on Wednesday morning, damaging buildings and triggering a tsunami warning.
The earthquake struck off the coast of Hualien Country at 7:58 am local time and was felt across the island, including its capital Taipei, officials said.
Wu Chien-fu, the head of Central Weather Administration’s Seismological Center, said it was the strongest earthquake to hit Taiwan since 1999. Despite its power, no casualties have been immediately reported.
Several tall buildings have partially collapsed. In other regions, the earthquake has triggered landslides.
