Tsunami Info Alert - Quake With 7.1 Magnitude Hits Taiwan
However, earthquakes of this size sometimes generate local tsunamis that can be destructive along coasts located within a hundred kilometers of the earthquake epicenter. Authorities in the region of the epicenter are aware of this possibility and are taking appropriate action.
The Japan meteorological agency may also issue tsunami messages for this event to countries in the northwest pacific and south china sea region. In case of conflicting information, this has been classified as
