Taiwan – M 4.9 – Moderate earthquake on the shore of Yilan County and 50 km from Taipei

Earthquake Report comment :
The moderate earthquake struck only 2 hours 10 minutes after another quake occurred only 100 km to the south.
For Taiwanese standards, this is an acceptable shock, although 2 shocks are never the same and can be felt totally different. Same depth as the former quake.
