http://news.yahoo.com/6-4-magnitude-earthquake-strikes-southern-taiwan-210602384.html [Broken]. . . . a shallow 6.4-magnitude earthquake struck before dawn Saturday, leaving still others trapped inside.
Nearest major cities are Tainan and Kaohsiung.
Time: 2016-02-05 19:57:27 (UTC)
Distance from major cities:
- 28km (17mi) NE of Pingtung, Taiwan
- 35km (22mi) SE of Yujing, Taiwan
- 46km (29mi) NE of Kaohsiung, Taiwan
- 48km (30mi) ESE of Tainan, Taiwan
- 672km (418mi) E of Hong Kong, Hong Kong
Depth = 23.0 km (14.3 mi); shallow
The Maanshan NPP is about 100 km (62 miles) SSE of Pingtung. It doesn't seem to be affected, but I haven't seen any news from Taipower. Hopefully, there will be a statement for AEC or Taipower in the next 12 to 24 hours.
