This was the strongest earthquake to hit Taiwan in a quarter-century according to state media.

A 7.2 magnitude earthquake hit the Taiwanese capitol Taipei on Wednesday morning leading to massive infrastructure damage and a tsunami warning being issued for southern Japan and the Philippines.

The quake began at 7:58 am local time at a depth of 9.6 miles off Taiwan’s east coast, according to Taiwan’s Central Weather Administration. X (formally Twitter) users have posted a number of jaw-dropping videos from on the ground of the island nation.
