A shallow 6.4-magnitude natural disaster rocked eastern Taiwan late today, United States geologists said, the latest in a string of quakes to have hit the region in recent days.
The quake was centered in the East China Sea about 21 kilometers north-northeast of Hualien City. Some are still trapped inside of the half-collapsed hotel and are shining the torches on their phones so responders know they're there.
Four other buildings, including two hotels, also tilted during the natural disaster in Hualien, a popular tourist destination on Taiwan's eastern coast, about 120 kilometres south of the capital, Taipei.
Compilation footage posted to Twitter by the China Global Television Network shows a building tilting on its side over a line of cars parked along the street. Another clip shows the damage caused inside a store.
Officials from Hualien fire department said 28 people had been rescued from the hotel and a residential building.
