A magnitude 6.2 earthquake hit moments ago 64 km east of Hualien City, Taiwan, according to data from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Earthquake Hazards Program.

The earthquake shook buildings in Taipei and across "much of the northern part of the island", AP reported early on Monday morning. 

"Walls creaked as office buildings shook in Taipei, the capital. Lights swayed and mirrors and pictures fell to the floor," the report said.
