Taiwan‘s capital was rattled by a ‘strong’ 5.5-magnitude earthquake, just days after another huge tremor left 17 dead.  

The Central Weather Administration (CWA) said the powerful quake originated in eastern Hualien early Monday evening.

The region was the epicentre of a magnitude-7.4 quake that hit on April 3, causing landslides around the mountainous region that blocked off roads, while buildings in the main Hualien city were badly damaged.

At least 17 were killed in the quake, with the latest body discovered on April 13 in a quarry.

Monday’s quake hit Taiwan at around 5:08pm local time and could be felt in the capital Taipei.
