Huge Earthquake Hits Taiwan Killing 7 Injuring Hundreds, Tsunami Warning

ER Editor: Taiwan, like Ukraine, is a western deep state stronghold. There is supposed to be a peaceful return of Taiwan to China, despite the warmongering noises we hear, just as Russia is taking down deep state forces in Ukraine: ‘China and Taiwan though, will reunify without any war, Asian secret society sources say. They say a deal has already been made for peaceful reunification’ (Source, Benjamin Fulford).

So we’re wondering if there is anything untoward behind the biggest earthquake to hit Taiwan in 25 years.  Hualien is on the eastern side of Taiwan, indicated by the arrow point below. Earthquakes are, of course, a regular occurrence in the region —

Huge earthquake hits Taiwan: Tsunami waves hit coasts across the region after 7.4-magnitude quake kills seven, collapses buildings and sparks landslides, injuring more than 700 people – with MORE tremors to come


At least seven people were killed and more than 700 injured by a powerful earthquake in Taiwan today that damaged dozens of buildings and triggered tsunami warnings that extended to Japan and the Philippines.

The magnitude-7.4 quake struck just before 8:00 am local time (0000 GMT), with the United States Geological Survey (USGS) putting the epicentre 18 kilometres (11 miles) south of Taiwan’s Hualien City, at a depth of 34.8 kilometres.

Officials said the quake was the strongest to shake the island in decades, and warned of more tremors in the days ahead.

Three people among a group of seven on an early-morning hike through the hills that surround the city were crushed to death by boulders loosened by the earthquake, officials said.

Separately, a truck driver died when his vehicle was hit by a landslide as it approached a tunnel in the area, with three others later confirmed dead by Taiwan’s national fire agency.

The deaths all occurred in Hualien county, a mountainous region along Taiwan’s eastern coast that was the epicentre of the quake.

Social media was awash with shared video and images from around the country of buildings swaying as the quake struck, while others partially collapsed and sprayed debris into the streets.

Traffic along the east coast was at a virtual standstill, with landslides and falling debris hitting tunnels and roads in the mountainous region. Those caused damage to vehicles.

‘The earthquake is close to land and it’s shallow. It’s felt all over Taiwan and offshore islands,’ said Wu Chien-fu, director of Taipei’s Central Weather Administration’s Seismology Center.

Strict building regulations and disaster awareness appear to have staved off a major catastrophe for the island, which is regularly hit by earthquakes as it lies near the junction of two tectonic plates.

Wu said the quake was the strongest since a 7.6-magnitude struck in September 1999, killing around 2,400 people in the deadliest natural disaster in the island’s history.
