A 6.9-magnitude earthquake occurred on Sunday Afternoon off the southeast coast of Taiwan. The earthquake was reported by The US Geological Survey (USGS). Before, a tsunami warning was issued by Japan as a result of the huge earthquake. The US Geological Survey lowered the earthquake from its initial strength of 7.2 to 6.9 magnitude.
According to a report, the earthquake struck at 02:44 pm, around 30 miles (50 kilometers) north of Taitung, at a depth of 10 kilometres.
