A 7.4-magnitude earthquake rocked the east coast of Taiwan on Wednesday morning, killing nine people and injuring at least 963, according to Taiwan’s fire department.

This is the largest to hit Taiwan in 25 years and triggered a tsunami warning.

Wednesday morning Taiwan’s National Fire Agency said the death toll remains at nine, with 963 people injured.

People trapped inside buildings have reportedly been pulled out but at least 143 people were still trapped, most of them in a highway tunnel and two rock quarries, the agency said.
