Breaking: Taiwan’s 7.5 Magnitude Earthquake Followed by Aggressive Move from The Chinese Army

Taiwan was rocked Wednesday morning by the island’s strongest earthquake in a quarter century, a magnitude 7.5 tremor that killed at least seven people, injured more than 700 others and trapped dozens of people.

The heaviest damage was in Hualien County on the island’s east coast, a sleepy, scenic area prone to earthquakes. Footage from the aftermath showed a 10-story building there partially collapsed and heavily leaning to one side, from which residents emerged through windows and climbed down ladders, assisted by rescuers.

There have been dozens of aftershocks since the early-morning earthquake also Tsunami warning was issued.

Taiwanese officials have also warned that there will be more seismic activity in the days ahead.

“The earthquake is close to land and it’s shallow. It’s felt all over Taiwan and offshore islands,” said Wu Chien-fu, director of Taipei’s Central Weather Administration’s Seismological Center.

Internet outages have been reported:

The Chinese army instead of helping their neighbor decided to prepare for war!

Over 30 Chinese warplanes and 9 navy vessels have been detected around Taiwan, Taiwanese defense ministry says:

Taiwan’s defence ministry said 20 of the aircraft crossed into the island’s so-called Air Defence Identification Zone (ADIZ).
Taiwan’s armed forces “monitored the situation and employed (patrol) aircraft, Navy vessels, and coastal missile systems in response to the detected activities”, it said in a statement.
