A 6.4-magnitude natural disaster in the East China Sea struck off the east coast of Taiwan just before midnight Tuesday local time, the United States Geological Survey reported.

The building is reported to be Marshal Hotel in Hualien City, which has nearly 300 rooms. He gave no further details. Photos and videos posted on social media show toppled and leaning high-rise buildings and badly damaged roads.

A hotel in Taiwan has collapsed after a huge quake.

Taiwan lies along the famed "Pacific Rim of Fire" known for seismic activity from Alaska to Southeast Asia. "Stay safe", Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen tweeted.

At least two people have died and 114 people have been injured, according to Taiwanese Premier William Lai.

Taiwan's government said three people were trapped inside.

The safety of the building was called into question immediately after the disaster, when metal cans and foam were found to have been used as fillers in the concrete and residents said there had been cracks in the structure.

The US Geological Survey said the quake struck late last night about 21km northeast of Hualien, on the island's east coast.

The island nation's worst tremor in recent decades was a 7.6-magnitude natural disaster in September 1999 that killed more than 2,400 people.
