2018 Taiwan earthquakes

Many have noted the earthquakes that have struck Taiwan this week. Below is info Google pulled from the US Geological Survey. News organizations (e.g., CNN https://www.cnn.com/2018/02/07/asia/taiwan-earthquake-hualien-intl/index.html) have video of the shaking and destruction. The quakes were centered near Hualien, a town that our summer study tour visited in 2010. The Taiwan Red Cross website is at: http://www.redcross.org.tw/english/index.jsp .

Taiwan's Central News Agency has information at: http://focustaiwan.tw/ 
Private news organizations include:
Taipei Times  http://www.taipeitimes.com/News/front/archives/2018/02/08/2003687280
China Post  https://chinapost.nownews.com/
