At 7:02 pm, 31 October 2013, a magnitude 6.3 earthquake occurred 45 km (28 miles) south-southwest of the coastal city of Hualian. The shallow depth of 12 km (7.5 mi) exacerbated the ground shaking. Buildings over a wide area, including Taipei, the capital city, were shaken. A note from the past: A magnitude 7.6 earthquake in central Taiwan in 1999 killed 2,416 people.
