Comments Off on Magnitude 4.5 earthquake strikes Kinmen
A magnitude 4.5 earthquake struck at sea between Kinmen and Penghu, two of Taiwan's outlying counties, at 3:10 p.m. on Monday, the Central Weather Bureau (CWB) said.
The quake's epicenter was located in the Taiwan Strait about 70.5 kilometers southeast of Kinmen County Hall at a depth of 33.8 km, the bureau's data showed.
No casualties or damage were reported.
Unlike Taiwan, Kinmen is seldom shaken by earthquakes, leaving many residents in Kinmen wondering if the shaking they were feeling was an artillery drill.
An intensity of 2 on Taiwan's 7-tiered intensity scale was felt in Kinmen and an intensity of 1 was felt in Penghu's Magong City, according to the bureau.
