This is an updating link from CNN. There's buildings down and people trapped. This must have happened a couple of hours ago and I just saw it on our news. Aftershocks are expected for the next couple of days. People on a highway in Taiwan were injured due to landslides and rockfalls. A lot of articles and pictures in here.
