Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen called on local and central government agencies to work together. He said Taiwan's military is also assisting in rescue operations.

Taiwan's National Fire Agency confirmed four people died in the earthquake. About 60 people injured in the earthquake are being treated, they said.

After the earthquake, Taipei metro service was temporarily suspended. But within an hour it was back on.

It was the strongest earthquake in Taiwan in 25 years. Before that, in September 1999, an earthquake of magnitude 7.6 struck Taiwan. It killed about 2 thousand 400 people.
