The earthquake struck at 5:43 a.m. Taiwan time, about 7:43 p.m. Hawaii time.

The U.S. Geological Survey estimates the magnitude of the earthquake at 6.2. It was centered about 14 miles south southeast of Bull, Taiwan and 27 miles east southeast of Nantou, Taiwan at a depth of 12.4 miles.

There were no immediate reports of serious injuries or damage.
