TAIPEI (Reuters) – A 6.3 magnitude earthquake struck Taiwan’s eastern county of Hualien on Tuesday, the island’s weather administration said, with no immediate reports of damage.

The quake shook buildings in the capital, Taipei. The quake had a depth of 5.5 km (3.4 miles), the weather administration said.

Taiwan has been hit by hundreds of aftershocks after a 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck Hualien earlier this month.
