There are no reports of damage but the epicentre was in Yilan county and buildings shook in the capital city of Taipei.

The power grid is running normally in the country, the state-run operator said.

The Taipei metro was briefly closed for checks – but it re-opened shortly afterwards.

Workers were evacuated when the quake struck, including from Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co Ltd – the world’s largest contract chipmaker.

Taiwan is situated close to the junction of two tectonic plates and is prone to earthquakes.
