Taidong Earthquake Swarm July 2018 (General)

It's supposed to be typhoon season but there's been an extended burst of earthquake activity for Taidong in the last couple of weeks and especially the last 24 hours - starting to worry where this is heading

Biggest was still only 4.5 but a lot - and shallow - including 5 quakes in a 10 minute period. I'd be getting jittery if I was living in the Shi Shang area (or anywhere in central Taidong county)

Wow! That's quite a bit of action. There was also an earthquake in Tainan recently which is very unusual.

This is the one that I believe triggered the Taidong earthquakes of Dec 2016 - the faults seem somehow connected

Can't remember the time-lag but think it was within a couple of weeks. Apart from the ones above, there were a few other occasions when earthquakes near Dulan followed suit from an event in the below location - including the magnitude
