The quake was 2 km (1.24 miles) below the earth's surface, according to the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre.

The tremors were felt across the island and led to a collapse of a low-rise building, a bridge in Yuli, and the derailing of several train carriages after a rain canopy at a train station in Hualien collapsed.
The Japanese Meteorological Agency on Sunday issued a tsunami watch for some islands near Taiwan. However, it called it off after an hour and a half.
