7.4 magnitude quake hits Taiwan, strongest in 25 years

Quake death toll rises to four people

Four people have been killed in Taiwan after a 7.4 magnitude earthquake rocked the island, according to Taiwan’s National Fire Agency (NFA).

The deaths all occurred in Hualien County, near the epicenter of the quake, according to NFA.

At least 57 people have been injured, with most of them reported in Hualien, the agency added.

The agency earlier disclosed that one of the fatalities was a hiker.

All tsunami warnings from Taiwan earthquake have now been lifted

Taiwan, Japan and the Philippines have all canceled their tsunami warnings, whilst the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center has said the threat to the United States has “largely passed”.

Tsunami waves were observed on the coasts of Taiwan and far southwestern Japanese islands after a 7.4 magnitude earthquake hit Taiwan on Wednesday morning.

But there were no immediate reports of any major damage caused by these waves.

In Taiwan: Tsunami heights reached nearly half a meter, or 1.5 feet, in Chenggong, approximately 100 km (62 miles) south of the quake’s epicenter. 

Observed tsunami heights are measured over open water and can reach significantly higher when they reach shore.

In Japan: A 0.3-meter wave impacted Okinawa Island, Naha airport spokesperson Hideaki Tsurodo told CNN, but no waves reached the airport and it was soon reopened.

In the Philippines: The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said “no significant sea level disturbances” had been recorded since the earthquake.  

“With this, any effects due to the tsunami warning have largely passed,” the institute said.

In the US: The threat of any tsunami risk has “largely passed”, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said. The update issued by its warning center in Honolulu said the evaluation was “based on all available data.”

It added that minor sea level “fluctuations” of up to 30 centimeters above and below normal tide levels could continue “over the next few hours.” 

The US Tsunami Warning Center also advised government agencies to “monitor conditions at the coast to determine if and when it is safe to resume normal activities.”

Tsunami waves less than 0.3 meters may be observed for the coasts of Guam, Indonesia, Northern Marianas, Palau, Philippines, South Korea, Vietnam, and Yap, the center added.

Taiwanese semiconductor company temporarily evacuates plants following earthquake

Taiwanese semiconductor company TSMC has temporarily evacuated manufacturing plants following a 7.4 magnitude earthquake that struck the island on Wednesday morning, the firm told CNN.

“TSMC’s safety systems are operating normally,” the company said, adding “to ensure the safety of personnel, some fabs were evacuated according to company procedure.”
“All personnel are safe, and those evacuated are beginning to return to their workplaces,” TSMC said.

According to initial inspections, the company’s construction sites are normal, but it “has decided to suspend work at construction sites for today, and work will resume following further inspections,” according to a statement from TSMC.

How earthquakes are measured

Measuring earthquakes is no easy task, given they strike suddenly and sometimes at global scale.

When the Earth’s crust shifts abruptly, an earthquake occurs, with energy radiated out as seismic waves and shaking that’s sometimes experienced by people, buildings and infrastructure.

Seismic waves and factors related to the shifting ground determine an earthquake’s magnitude, as measured through 10 on the scale most commonly used to describe quakes.

How strong the shaking feels is an earthquake’s intensity, as measured on a scale that uses Roman numerals to assign categories based on assessed damage and people’s observations.
