Cdns found dead in quake

The missing five tourists, including one child, come from Beijing and are believed to be trapped in the Yun Men Tusi Ti building.

Ambassador Shen expressed gratitude to Prime Minister Allen Chastanet, who he said, called one hour after the quake struck to express his concerns.

The seven missing are a couple from Hong Kong who hold Canadian citizenship and five members of a family from China, including parents, grandparents and their 12-year-old son. Six mainland Chinese were also injured, the Chinese Communist Party-run People's Daily reported.

The magnitude-6.4 quake occurred near the city of Hualien, destroying a hotel and other buildings.

At the city's Marshal Hotel, rescuers trying to free two trapped Taiwanese pulled out one alive, but the other person was declared dead, the Government said. The quake also buckled roads and disrupted electricity and water supplies to thousands of households.

The search for the five missing mainland tourists has been halted due to the smell of gas, local fire fighting authorities said late Friday, adding that rescue work will be continued after the smell disperses.

Taiwan's Ambassador to St Lucia, Douglas C.T. Shen say St Lucians living in the south-east Asian country are safe following a devastating natural disaster that has claimed the lives of at least ten people and left more than 270 injured. As rescue efforts continue, Saint Lucia, having very close ties with Taiwan has reached out and extended condolences to the families of the victims.

Bridges and some highways along Taiwan's east coast were closed pending inspections.

"The President has asked the cabinet and related ministries to immediately launch the "disaster mechanism" and to work at the fastest rate on disaster relief work", Mr Tsai's office said in a statement. "Canada stands with the people of Taiwan during this hard time".

The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake struck just before midnight Tuesday about 21 kilometers (13 miles) northeast of Hualien at a relatively shallow depth of about 10.6 kilometers (6.6 miles). The last major quake hit two years ago, causing the collapse of an apartment complex and resulting in the deaths of 115 people.
