Earthquake in Taiwan prompts tsunami warning

A 6.9 magnitude earthquake has struck Taiwan. The earthquake was originally listed as a 7.2.

The earthquake was centred 86.7 km east of Yujing, Taiwan at a depth of 10 km and occurred on Sunday at 2:44 pm local time.

While damage is still being accessed, there were reports of collapsed buildings in southern sections of the country. The military was deployed to assist.

The Japan Meteorological Agency issued a tsunami warning for the Miyakojima/Yaeyama region. The warning has since been lifted.

The earthquake was also felt in Japan, the Philippines, and China.
