On April 3, Taiwan’s capital city, Taipei was hit by a devastating earthquake of 7.4 magnitude. The quake resulted in the deaths of nine individuals and injured over a thousand others. The footage captured on social media shows buildings shaking, bridges swaying and individuals desperately seeking shelter amidst the chaos.

Amongst the many videos that have gone viral on social media is one of a rooftop swimming pool during the earthquake. The video depicts a man struggling in the pool amid powerful waves caused by the tremor. Despite the perilous circumstances, the man remains composed and stays in place. Another video circulating on social media shows water from a rooftop swimming pool cascading down a skyscraper like a waterfall.

Reports from news agencies state that this earthquake is the most powerful to hit Taiwan in 25 years, with officials cautioning about potential aftershocks in the days to come. Taiwanese officials compare the severity of this quake to the 7.6 magnitude earthquake that struck the nation in 1999, claiming 2,400 lives.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressed his condolences to the families who lost loved ones due to the earthquake and conveyed India’s solidarity with the resilient people of Taiwan. He assured Taiwan of India’s support as they work towards recovery from the aftermath of the earthquake.
