The German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) reported a magnitude 6.1 quake in Taiwan near Yilan, Taiwan, only 10 minutes ago. The earthquake hit in the evening on Thursday 10 December 2020 at 9:19 pm local time at a moderately shallow depth of 67 km. The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be revised within the next few hours or minutes as seismologists review data and refine their calculations, or as other agencies issue their report.
A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 5.9 earthquake.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake was probably felt by many people in the area of the epicenter. It should not have caused significant damage, other than objects falling from shelves, broken windows, etc.
In Yilan (pop. 94,200) located 30 km from the epicenter, Keelung (pop. 397,500) 57 km away, Taipei (pop. 7,871,900) 65 km away, Banciao (pop. 543,300) 68 km away, Daxi (pop. 84,500) 79 km away, Taoyuan City (pop. 402,000) 82 km away, Hualien City (pop. 350,500) 91 km away, Hsinchu (pop. 404,100) 109 km away, and Puli (pop. 86,400) 135 km away, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
