After the 7.2 magnitude earthquake in Hualien, there were 200 aftershocks till about 8 pm.

A 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck Hualien this morningEarthquakeAccording to data from the Meteorological Administration’s earthquake center, 200 tremors have occurred till 8:25 pm, with the highest being 99 between scale 3 and 4, followed by 87 tremors between scale 4 and 5; There are still 2 tremors above scale 6.

According to information received from the Central Meteorological Administration, an earthquake measuring 7.2 on the Richter scale occurred at 7:58 am today, whose epicenter was at a depth of 15.5 kilometers. The epicenter was located 25.0 kilometers south-southeast of Hualien County Government (located in the waters of eastern Taiwan). The earthquake in Hualien County had a maximum intensity of 6.

The Meteorological Administration’s Center for Earthquake Prediction and Forecasting said that as of 8:25 pm, 200 aftershocks had occurred, including two with a magnitude of more than 6.5, a magnitude of 6.5 at 8:11 am and a magnitude of 6.5 at 10:14 am. Was 6.2. and magnitude 5. 6 to 12 times the scale, 4 to 5 scale 87 times, and 3 to 4 scale 99 times.

The Center for Seismology said current observations of this earthquake sequence are clear. Since the main shock of magnitude 7.2 in the morning, there have been no other earthquakes of similar intensity. Therefore, it has been determined that it is not a group of earthquakes, but a single earthquake sequence.

The epicenter reminds that the epicenter of this earthquake is the epicenter of the Philippine Sea Plate, which is also an earthquake-prone area. It is currently estimated that this earthquake should be the main shock. Due to the rapid accumulation of energy in this area, be careful over the next 3 or 4 days. The intensity may be 6.5 to 6.5 or higher. Tremors of 7.0.
