An undersea earthquake measuring 5.2 on the Richter scale rocked most of the country yesterday, seismologists said. There were no immediate reports of damage or casualties. The quake was centered 75km east of the town of Chengkung, and 220km from Taipei, the weather bureau said. It originated 35km under the sea. The tremor drew special attention after a massive earthquake in the Pacific Ocean on Wednesday triggered widespread tsunami warnings stretching from Indonesia to California. A small tsunami measuring 40cm hit Japan's northeastern coast but did no damage.
