Taipei: Apart from major aftershocks and collapse of buildings, the massive earthquake in Taiwan has also caused landslides across the island. Visuals from residents have surfaced online which show large chunks of land sliding down due to the tremors.
Several videos on the social media platform X (formerly Twitter) show videos of major landslides which were caused by the 7.5 magnitude earthquake.

Massive Earthquake Jolts Taiwan

A major earthquake struck eastern Taiwan around 8 AM local time. The earthquake, which measured 7.5 on the Richter Scale resulted in tsunami warning being issued for neighbouring Japan and The Philippines.
As per the United States Geological Survey (USGS), the earthquake had a magnitude of 7.4. However, Japan's Meteorological Agency put the magnitude at 7.5.
The epicentre of the earthquake was reported 18 kilometres south of Taiwan's Hualien City. As per China's Central Weather Administration, the 7.5 magnitude earthquake was followed by around seven aftershocks ranging from 4.6 to 6.5 magnitude.

Tsunami Warnings For Japan

Following the earthquake in Taiwan, tsunami waves as high as three metres (10 feet) are expected to strike Japan, especially for the remote Japanese islands. Japan's national broadcaster NHK displayed an 'Evacuate' warning as soon as the earthquake struck Taiwan.
The anchors could be heard saying - "Tsunami is coming. Please evacuate immediately. Do not stop. Do not go back".
