Powerful Quake Topples Buildings and Kills 2

Earthquakes in various places....that's another sign that Jesus told us to watch for.  Have you seen the large quakes increasing like birth pangs in the last decade?

Powerful Taiwan earthquake kills 2, topples buildings

A magnitude-6.4 earthquake rocked Taiwan on Tuesday, killing at least two people, injuring more than 100, toppling buildings and damaging roads, authorities said.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake was centered 13 miles north-northeast of Hualien, a city of more than 100,000 on Taiwan's east coast. Photos and videos posted on social media show toppled and leaning high-rise buildings and badly damaged roads.

Multiple, strong aftershocks rattled the area, keeping residents and emergency officials on edge.

"Armed forces & government agencies are responding. Relief measures are underway. Stay safe," Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen tweeted.

Taiwan's CTI -TV reported at least five buildings collapsed in the city. The high-rise Marshal Hotel caved-in, and 116 people were evacuated from the 11-story building after the bottom three floors were crushed, firefighters told Taiwan's state-owned Central News Agency.
