TAIPEI (TVBS News) — The Central Weather Administration (CWA) reported on Tuesday (April 9) that 782 aftershocks have occurred as of 8:02 a.m., with the daily total gradually decreasing over the past six days.

Among the 782 aftershocks, two were of magnitude 6 or above. A magnitude 6.5, occurred at 8:11 a.m. on April 3, followed by a magnitude 6.2 at 10:14 a.m. the same day. There were 27 aftershocks of magnitude 5 to 6, 229 of magnitude 4 to 5, and 524 of magnitude 3 to 4.

 

According to the CWA, the initial earthquake, which struck at 7:58 a.m. on April 3, measured 7.2 on the Richter scale. Its epicenter was located 25.0 kilometers southeast of the Hualien County government office, in the waters off eastern Taiwan, with a depth of 15.5 kilometers.

The CWA warned Monday that aftershocks could continue due to the main quake's magnitude of over 7. It did not rule out the possibility of magnitude 5 or above aftershocks.

The CWA also noted that earthquakes cannot be predicted, so it is uncertain when the aftershocks will completely end. However, it reminds the public that aftershocks are likely to remain active for at least a month.
