6.0-magnitude earthquake shakes Taiwan’s central coast

TAIPEI, Taiwan (AP) — A 6.0 magnitude earthquake rocked Taiwan on Monday morning. No damage or injuries were immediately reported.

The quake struck at 9:05 a.m. at a depth of 6.8 kilometers (4.2 miles) in Hualien County, midway on the island’s east coast, Taiwan’s Central Meteorological Bureau said.

It was felt across most of the island of 24 million, including to the north in Taipei, the capital. It was also felt across the Taiwan Strait in mainland China’s Fujian province, Chinese state broadcaster CCTV said.
