Strong earthquake hits southeastern Taiwan, building collapses

A 6.8-magnitude earthquake hit the sparsely populated southeastern part of Taiwan on Sunday, the island’s weather bureau said. Four people were rescued from a building housing a convenience store that collapsed in Yuli. More than 600 people are trapped on the scenic Chike and Liushishi mountain areas by blocked roads, though there were no injuries. The U.S. Pacific Tsunami Warning Center issued a warning for Taiwan after the tremor but later lifted the alert. Japan’s weather agency lifted a tsunami warning for part of Okinawa prefecture.
