Taiwan’s strongest earthquake in 25 years has killed at least four people. The Associated Press reported this on Wednesday, April 3, in connection with the Taiwanese rescue service.

It was reported that 711 people across the island were injured in the earthquake, while the whereabouts of another 77 remained unaccounted for.

It was also noted that due to the earthquake, the island’s authorities suspended train service, and service on one of the above-ground metro lines in Taipei was suspended due to damage.

The earthquake destroyed at least 26 buildings on the island. People in seven of these buildings were trapped, and more than 90 thousand households on the island were left without electricity.

The US Geological Survey estimated the earthquake’s magnitude at 7.4, making it the strongest earthquake to hit Taiwan in 25 years.
