Possible aftershocks following a 5.7 magnitude earthquake: CWB




TAIPEI, Sept. 26 (CNA) In the wake of the major earthquake that hit Hualien County on Sunday morning, the Central Meteorological Bureau (CWB) warned of possible aftershocks in the area over the next two days.

The 5.7-magnitude earthquake occurred at 6:21 a.m., with its epicenter in Xiulin Town – 37.1 kilometers northeast of the county hall – at a depth of 45 kilometers.

The CWB said the earthquake’s intensity, which measures its actual impact, was highest in Hualien, Yilan and Hsinchu counties, measuring 4 on the 7-layer Taiwanese intensity scale.

Initial observations indicate that the earthquake occurred within a subduction zone, said Chen Kuo Chang (陳國昌), director of the CWB Seismological Center.

He added that since monitoring began in 1973, subduction zone earthquakes have been rare in Hulin, and Sunday’s quake was the most powerful earthquake ever recorded in the region.

Qin said that while aftershocks of a subduction zone earthquake rarely occur, the possibility cannot be ruled out over the next two days.

There were no reports of damage or injuries due to the earthquake.

In related news, the earthquake caused local rail schedules to be delayed. The Taiwan Railways Administration announced on Sunday that a total of 4,800 passengers were affected as a number of trains were temporarily halted due to safety concerns.
