Taiwan was struck by a powerful 7.2 magnitude earthquake, the strongest in almost 25 years, resulting in significant damage and casualties. One person has been reported dead and 56 others injured. The earthquake prompted the evacuation of semiconductor manufacturing plants and the suspension of train services. The impact was felt in the world of technology as Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, the largest contract chipmaker, evacuated personnel and halted construction work. The aftermath of the quake also led to a tsunami warning in Japan’s Okinawa region, although it was later lifted. The devastation and disruption caused by the earthquake in Taiwan have raised concerns about the wider impact on semiconductor production and the region's recovery efforts.
