Workers try to shore up tilted buildings after Taiwan quake

Rescuers comb Taiwan quake rubble for remaining 7 missingMore

Windows had collapsed and the building, which is around 17 years old, was wedged into the ground at a roughly 40-degree angle.

A deadly magnitude 6.0 quake rattled eastern Taiwan on Feb. 6 and caused four buildings to collapse in Hualien, including the Platinum Twin Star Building (白金雙星大樓) and the Wu-ju-wu-shu Building (吾居吾宿大樓) on Guosheng 6 Street in Hualien.

Taiwan authorities have turned down mainland China's offer of help while accepting Japanese assistance, following a 6.4 magnitude natural disaster in the eastern coastal city of Hualian on Tuesday. The latest figures from government data indicated 85 people were missing.

Among the injured were mainland Chinese, Czech, Japanese, Singaporean and South Korean nationals.

Two of the victims were employees at the Marshal Hotel, which partially collapsed and saw its bottom three floors destroyed, the Taiwan News reported. The building is now fortified using concrete blocks and steel bars to avoid further damage that can harm the rescuers.

"I grabbed my wife and children and we ran out and tried to rescue people", he said. She had been working for one of the families that lived in the building.

President of Taiwan Tsai Ing-Wen visited the site of the calamity to check on the rescuers, family of the victims, and everyone else who were injured during the quake.

Since Feb. 4, more than 100 earthquakes have jolted the area.
