According to reports, the quake hit at 6:56 a.m., with the epicenter located in Shoufeng Township, about 15.2 kilometers southwest of the Hualien County government building at a depth of 22.2 km, the CWB’s Seismology Center said.
The strongest tremor was felt in the county’s Tungmen area, at an intensity of 4 on Taiwan’s 7-grade scale, according to CWB records.
The bureau’s seismologists said it would require more time to determine exactly whether the temblor has anything to do with the 6.3 earthquake that rocked Ruisui, Hualien County at the end of October.
The Oct. 31 earthquake was the second most powerful quake to strike Taiwan so far this year, but no major casualties or damage were reported.
