Taiwan rescue workers pull out more bodies

Rescuers comb Taiwan quake rubble for remaining 7 missing

Firefighters climbed ladders hoisted against windows to reach residents inside apartments.

Residents at temporary shelters set up in Hualien City described the terror of the powerful quake and their immediate worry for loved ones.

"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", Tsai's office said in a statement. In a post on her official Facebook page, Tsai said she arrived in Hualien on Wednesday to review rescue efforts. "I'm still afraid because things kept on falling down".

There are 92 St Lucians now living in Taiwan according to Taiwan's National Immigration Agency. According to Chinese state broadcaster CCTV, at least three of the dead were tourists from the mainland.

The government said 16 foreigners sought medical treatment for minor injuries.

Among the injured were mainland Chinese, Czech, Japanese, Singaporean and South Korean nationals. Half a dozen excavator trucks surrounded the site, where rescue efforts were temporarily suspended because the building was "sliding", according to Taiwan's Central Emergency Operation Center.

"We will do our best to find the missing people within the 72-hour golden rescue period", said Fu. At least seven people are reported still missing.

A auto sat submerged in rubble as rescue workers combed through the ruins of a nearby building.

But less than an hour after the quake, the policeman who lost his home plunged right back to work and joined in the search for people thought to be in the damaged structures who were unaccounted for. Its streets were buckled by the force of the quake, with about 40,000 homes left without water and about 1,900 without power.

After the quake late Tuesday night, a family of five from the Chinese mainland were still trapped in the rubble as of 4 p.m. Friday.

Exactly two years earlier, a magnitude 6.4 quake collapsed an apartment complex in southern Taiwan, killing 115 people.

Five people were later found guilty over the disaster, including the developer and two architects, for building an inadequate structure.
