Taiwan was shaken by a 5.8 followed by a 6.2 magnitude earthquake with no immediate reports of damage Sunday, according to the island's weather bureau.
The first quake, which shook buildings in the capital Taipei, had a depth of 15 km (9.3 miles) with its epicenter in Hualien County on Taiwan's eastern coast, the bureau said.
The second quake, shortly after the first one, had a depth of 14 km, also with its epicenter in Hualien, it said.
The transport ministry said operations on the island's high-speed rail line, which runs on Taiwan's western coast, were unaffected.
The fire department said it had not received any reports of damage.
More than 100 people were killed in a quake in southern Taiwan in 2016, while a 7.3 magnitude quake killed more than 2,000 people in 1999.
