Japan has downgraded its tsunami warning to a tsunami advisory following a powerful earthquake measuring 7.4 that struck Taiwan a day earlier. 

The earthquake, the most powerful to hit Taiwan in nearly a quarter-century, has resulted in nine fatalities, with 143 individuals still trapped in rubble and over 1,000 injured, according to the island nation's Central News Agency (CNA). 

The casualties occurred primarily in Hualien, with four victims in Taroko Gorge, two near the Dachingshui and Huide tunnels, one in a residential building in Hualien City, and one in the Hejen mining area, with many attributed to rockfalls.
