Eastern Taiwan was rattled by as many as 32 earthquakes overnight, with three of them identified as main earthquakes.
The earthquake swarm was recorded between 11:17 p.m. Wednesday and 8:00 a.m., Thursday.
Although this region is known for frequent seismic events, 32 earthquakes from which 3 have been classified as major is something weird and important to publish.
Is this swarm a sign for the next devastating earthquake in Taiwan. The last one was only three months ago.
As shown on the Central Weather Bureau of Taiwan, a total of 32 earthquakes hit the eastern part of the Island between 11:17 p.m. Wednesday and 8:00 a.m., Thursday.
The first earthquake of the series was the most powerful with a magnitude of 5.6. The two other major quakes (M4.3 and M5.5) occurred early Thursday.
Remember the Tainan earthquake:
