Taiwan experienced its deadliest earthquake in 1935, with over 3,200 people losing their lives. The Hsinchu Taichung earthquake had a magnitude of 7.1 and resulted in the destruction of tens of thousands of homes and injury of over 12,000 individuals.

In recent years, Taiwan has been hit by several devastating earthquakes. In 2016, a 6.4-magnitude earthquake caused a 17-story building to collapse in Tainan, resulting in the deaths of at least 116 people. The epicenter of the earthquake was located in Taiwan’s central mountain range, with Tainan being one of the hardest-hit areas.

On Wednesday, Taiwan was struck by its strongest earthquake since 1999, when a 7.6-magnitude tremor hit central Taiwan and claimed the lives of more than 2,400 people. Over 100,000 houses were damaged or destroyed as a result of this catastrophic earthquake.
