A devastating earthquake has struck Taiwan, causing at least nine deaths, mostly in the Hualien area, and leaving over 1,000 people injured. Among the casualties are five women and four men. The Central News Agency reported that until 10:00 pm Wednesday, a total of nine fatalities had been confirmed.

Rescue operations are in full swing, with 143 individuals still trapped in various locations such as the Renhe mining area, hotels, mining sites, and trekking trails. Efforts are focused on Provincial Highway No-8, with the Deputy Minister of Economic Affairs emphasizing the safety of rescue personnel, especially during nighttime operations. Some individuals, like employees at Silks Place Taroko, have managed to find safety, while others await rescue, highlighting the urgent need to reach those still trapped.

Multiple relief measures are being undertaken, with shelters set up by the New Taipei City Government's Social Welfare Department and additional flights arranged by the Civil Aviation Administration for affected residents and travelers during the upcoming holiday period. However, challenges persist in terms of restoring power and water supply to the affected households, with restoration efforts expected to continue and damaged infrastructure slowly being repaired. The community is rallying together to ensure the safety and well-being of those impacted by this natural disaster.
