Death toll rises to 10 in earthquake hit Taiwan; Earthquake of 6.1 magnitude shakes Japan

The death toll has risen to 10 while more than a thousand people have been injured in a powerful earthquake that hit earlier this week. The tremors severely affected the Hualien region with its mountainous terrain and the Capital Taipei. It caused the most damage in Hualien, where buildings fell, roads were blocked and train lines were disrupted, leaving the remote region even more cut off from the rest of Taiwan.

This was the strongest earthquake which has affected Taiwan in 25 years. According to reports, 18 people are still missing including four Indian, Canadian and Australian. Meanwhile, an earthquake of 6.1 magnitude hit Japan yesterday.
