The strongest earthquake to hit Taiwan was registered to be of magnitude 6.1, as reported by the U.S. Geological Survey.

Centered along the coast of rural and mountainous Hualien County, it marked Taiwan’s strongest earthquake in 25 years and triggered hundreds of aftershocks.

The strongest of the latest tremors, which the United States Geological Survey measured at a magnitude of 6.1, hit at about 2.30am (18:30 GMT) followed minutes later by a 6.0 tremor.

The seismic activity, which was centred around Hualien on the east coast, caused buildings across large parts of northern, eastern and western Taiwan to shake throughout the night.

Taipei’s Central Weather Administration put them at 6.0 and 6.3, respectively. Office worker Kevin Lin, who lives in the capital Taipei, told a reputed news agency that the quake woke him.

At about 8am (00:00 GMT), a 5.8-magnitude tremor shook the capital as commuters made their way to work. Mostly people were too scared to move and stayed in bed.

The mountainous county of Hualien, about 150km (93 miles) from Taipei, was the epicentre of a magnitude-7.2 quake that struck the island on April 23, severely damaging buildings in Hualien City and triggering landslides in the surrounding countryside.

At least 14 people were killed, and there have been more than 1,100 aftershocks. Taiwan’s Central Weather Administration said the latest cluster of earthquakes were also aftershocks.
