By Benjamin Flowers: Tsunami warnings have been issued in the Republic of China (Taiwan) after the island nation was rocked by a magnitude 6.9 earthquake early this morning, CNN reports.

The earthquake, which was so powerful caused buildings to collapse, hit the township of Chishang located in southeastern rural Taiwan.

Following the earthquake, Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen activated the island’s Central Emergency Operation Center and issued a recorded message, warning residents to be prepared for potential aftershocks. Around 110 military personnel have been deployed to affected areas to assist with rescue operations.

Thus far 20 people have been evacuated from a derailed train in the aftermath of the earthquake.

Taiwan’s capital city, Taipei, was also shaken by an earthquake on Saturday. A magnitude 6.6 magnitude quake occurred in the vicinity but there was minimal damage because the area is mountainous and sparsely populated.
