The weather bureau said the epicentre was in Taitung county, and followed a 6.4 magnitude temblor on Saturday evening in the same area, which caused no casualties.
Emergency services responded to a building collapse in Yuli, Taiwan. Local police said at least 17 people were injured in the worst affected Hualien County.
