A 6.6-degree seismic quake struck off the east bank of Taiwan today, the US Topographical Outline said.
The shiver hit not long after 9:30 pm (1330 GMT) around 50 kilometers (30 miles) .
North of the waterfront city of Taitung at 10 kilometers down, the USGS said. Close by media at first reported no injuries or mischief from the shiver.
Taiwan’s Central Environment Organization put the degree rather lower at 6.4 yet said it was shallower at 7.3 kilometers. Taiwan is regularly hit by quakes as the island lies near the crossing point of two underlying plates.
The island doesn’t give tsunami counsels with the exception of in the event that a shiver is more noteworthy than size 7.0.
A couple of seismic quakes of 6.0 or more can exhibit deadly, though much depends upon where the shake strikes and at what significance.
Notwithstanding, the USGS evaluated there was a low likelihood of mishaps today, but said some mischief was possible.
