That was the sharpest one I've felt in months. :eek: I'm glad that was over quickly.

Hmm. A 5.0 off Hualian. I'm surprised it seemed so sharp here in Banqiao.

Maybe it was too long? It felt weird indeed, not jerky, more like rolling. Disturbing.

It wasn't even a 5. I'm surprised it felt so strong here in Nangang.

I noticed because the water in my bottle was making waves and the blinds shook. :sad:

Damn, that was scary. Nothing yet on the Central Weather Bureau's site.

A 6.1 -- though for some reason the site is also giving it as a 7(!) for parts of Hualian.

Looks like it was near Taroko Gorge. I hope no one was injured by rockfall.

Two actually. 17 wounded. One critical.

Oh dear. Hope they turn out ok. Are there any photos of the two buildings?
