    I wonder how they fared? That's pretty good size. One that size in New Madrid would do horrendous damage in STL and Memphis. Soil type determines so much, and depth. Anyone heard anything on it?

    Hi Rose. I just found this.

    TAIPEI, Taiwan – A powerful 6.4-magnitude earthquake rocked southern Taiwan on Thursday morning causing buildings to sway hundreds of miles (kilometers) to the north. Local news reports said at least one person was injured.

    The quake was centered in the county of Kaohsiung, and struck at a depth of about 3.1 miles (5 kilometers). Kaohsiung is about 249 miles (400 kilometers) south of the capital Taipei.

    Residents in Taipei could feel buildings shake, and the quake caused power outages. The island's high-speed rail service was suspended, Taiwan's cable news stations reported.

    No tsunami alert was issued.

    A Kaohsiung official told the CTI news station some temporary shelter housing shelters, erected in the wake of a devastating typhoon last summer, collapsed as a result of the quake.

    Earthquakes frequently rattle Taiwan but most are minor and cause little or no damage.
