Rattled Taiwan hit by more aftershocks

lated southeastern Taiwan continues to be rattled by a series of jolts since Saturday.

The most powerful, a six. 9-magnitude quake, struck on Sunday mid-day, tearing up roads and bringing down a handful of houses in the town of Yuli where at least one person has been killed.

Four others were preserved from a collapsed developing, while authorities stated a total of 146 suffered injuries.

Taiwan is frequently hit by quakes and most cause minimal damage but the island also has a long history of deadly disasters.

Hualien, a tourist hotspot, was hit by a 6. 4-magnitude earthquake in 2018 that killed seventeen people and hurt nearly 300.

In September 1999, a 7. 6-magnitude quake killed about 2, 400 individuals in the deadliest natural disaster in the island’s history.
