Fatalities reported due to the worst earthquake that Taiwan has suffered in almost 25 years

Taipei, Taiwan — Taiwan’s largest earthquake in a quarter-century shook the island during morning rush hour Wednesday, damaging buildings and killing at least seven people.

In the capital, Taipei, tiles fell from older buildings and schools evacuated their students to sports fields, equipping them with yellow safety helmets. Some children covered themselves with textbooks from the possibility of falling objects as the aftershocks continued. Later, a five-story building in Hualien county, near the epicenter at sea, was left leaning at a 45-degree angle on its collapsed first floor.

Seven people died in the tremor, which occurred just before 8:00 a.m., according to Taiwan’s national fire agency. The local newspaper United Daily News reported that three hikers died during a landslide in Koroko National Park and a truck driver died in the same area after large rocks hit his vehicle.
