The tremors were felt throughout central Taiwan, according to local media. The quake rocked the Chinese territory just after noon on Sunday local time.
Hualien County is a sparsely populated, mountainous area on Taiwan’s eastern coast with a total population of about 330,000.
Sunday’s quake comes less than a day after the same area was shaken by a 4.5-magnitude tremor on Saturday evening.
