A strong earthquake shook Taiwan on Thursday afternoon, rekindling memories of a deadly tremor that hit the island a year ago.
The magnitude-6.0 earthquake hit at 1:01 p.m. and was centered off the coast of Hualien, on Taiwan’s east coast, according to a preliminary assessment by the United States Geological Service. Powerful shaking was felt in the capital, Taipei, 75 miles to the north.
There were no immediate reports of injuries or fatalities.
All subway service in Taipei was temporarily canceled, Taiwan’s state-run Central News Agency reported.
