Pinay missing in 6.4 magnitude Taiwan quake

Pinay missing in 6.4 magnitude Taiwan quake”

Taiwanese media report that the major quake which hit eastern Taiwan late Tuesday has caused extensive damage along a major fault line.

Under what was once the building's ground floor, rescuers continued to work among gnarled rebar, bricks and other debris, as humming generators powered emergency flood lights. "The government will work with everyone to guard their homeland". Authorities said more than 140 people still remain unaccounted for from one of the buildings damaged by the quake.

The headcount of missing people is based on registered occupants, Chen said by phone, adding that firefighters were evaluating whether to prop up the building with steel. "They're scrambling for time".

People severely injured in the natural disaster would receive NT$250,000, including NT$100,000 from the foundation, NT$100,000 from the county government and NT$50,000 from the ministry, the premier said. A vehicle sat submerged in rubble as rescue workers combed through the ruins of a nearby building. "But then it got really terrifying", Chen Ming-hui said after he was reunited with his son and grandson.

Rescuers worked their way around and through the building while residents looked on from behind cordoned-off roads.

Taiwanese media reported that the Beautiful Life Hotel also was tilting.

With aftershocks continuing to hit after the quake, residents were directed to shelters, including a newly built baseball stadium, where beds and hot food were provided.

Hsu Kuo-Yung said the railway department hasn't given a full status report of the damage yet but he said it seems the railways have not been damaged much.

Hualien is home to about 100,000 people.

The 6.5-magnitude quake occurred at 11.50 pm on Tuesday night with its epicentre located at 18.3 kilometres north-northeast of the city of Hualien, Efe news reported.

Lai made the announcement while presiding over an ad hoc meeting at the Central Emergency Operation Center in New Taipei City, which is coordinating rescue efforts and assessing damage in the aftermath of the magnitude 6.0 quake. Five people involved in the construction of the complex were later found guilty of negligence and given prison sentences.

More than 100 people were killed in a quake in southern Taiwan in 2016, and more than 2,000 people died after a 7.6 magnitude quake that was felt across the island in 1999.
