Fears of tsunami ease after Taiwan quake

Fears of tsunami ease after Taiwan quake

On Tuesday, December 26th, 2006, Taiwan's Central Weather Bureau reported an earthquake measured at 6.7 on the Richter scale. The quake originated at sea about 13 miles southwest of Hengchun on the southern tip of Taiwan. As of now, there has only been 1 death reported. Many were concern that the earthquake might set off a tsunami, much like the one 2 years ago which claimed over 230,000 people. Fortunately, there are no signs that a tsunami was or would be triggered. Earthquakes are common in Taiwan since the island sits on a volcanic fault.
