BREAKING NEWS: Massive Earthquake Strikes Taiwan Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Wed, Mar 3, 2010, 05:54 PM

A 6.4 earthquake has just struck the island of Taiwan. The news is just starting to break that a massive earthquake has rattled Taiwan.

Here's a link to a website to the USGS website, which first reported on the earthquake. You can link here:

UPDATE: The epicenter of the earthquake struck Kaoshiung County in Southern Taiwan. The town most affected by the earthquake was Jiashian. Contrary to previous reports, sources from Taiwan have informed the Dallas Blog that some infrastructure damage and injuries have already been reported. High-speed rail services have been suspended and power outages have occured.

According to eyewitness accounts, some heavy equipment, possibly (75) tanks, have started to roll into the town of Jiashian. Eyewitnesses could not determine if the so-called heavy equipment originated from the Taipei or Beijing government. It was later confirmed by the Tapei Defense Ministry that the heavy equipment was deployed by the Taipei government.

Count on China to show up with way too much "aid", and retake the island.
