Massive Earthquake Hits Taiwan, Japan Briefly Issues Tsunami Warning, Philippines On Alert

The 7.4 magnitude quake caused multiple buildings to collapse in Hualien, the city closest to the epicentre.

The strongest tremor to hit the island in 25 years was also felt as far as Taiwan’s mountainous interior, which was rocked by huge landslides.

Taiwanese chipmaking giant TSMC said it has evacuated some of its factories in Hsinchu and southern Taiwan for its staff’s safety, but it added that its safety systems are operating normally. TSMC is a major producer of semiconductors for tech firms including Apple and Nvidia.
