Seven people were killed and 260 were injured as of 10:00 p.m. Wednesday after a magnitude 6.5 natural disaster hit Taiwan. "We get this sort of thing all the time and it's really nothing", said Chen Ming-hui, who was rescued after being trapped in the basement of a hotel. "It was really scary".
Japan's Foreign Ministry said nine Japanese were among the injured. In total, 31 foreigners were affected, including 14 South Koreans, two Czechs, two Singaporeans and one Filipino, CNA reported.
Meanwhile, 600 military personnel and more than 750 firefighters combed through rubble and helped with rescue efforts, according to Taiwan's Central Emergency Operation Center.

The Manila Economic and Cultural Office (Meco) has confirmed that a Filipino is missing following a 6.4-magnitude quake that struck Hualien County.
Bridges and highways remain closed pending inspections as the force of the tremors twisted roads and many have damaged bridge foundations. About 800 have taken shelter in community buildings, including a newly-built baseball stadium, where relief organisations provided emergency supplies. However, Hualien's airport runway was intact and rail links appear to be unaffected.

The quake hit the island nation 11:50 pm (local time) (3.50pm GMT) on Tuesday, around 21 kilometres, northeast of the port city of Hualien, according to the United States Geological Survey (USGS).
Located along the so-called Pacific Ring of Fire, Taiwan uses an intensity scale of 1 to 7, which gauges the degree to which a quake is felt in a specific location. At the start of the day, Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen 145 people were unaccounted for; by nightfall, CNA reported that number had fallen to 66. Five people involved in the construction of the complex were later found guilty of negligence and given prison sentences.
As many as 150 people were initially feared to have been missing in the rubble.
The biggest natural disaster in recent memory was a 7.3 temblor that killed 2,400 people in 1999.
