As a reminder, Taipei City Government called upon the public to follow a few safety instructions in the wake of a major earthquake. People should watch out for any signs of irregularity on the exterior of buildings and inspect if there is any crack appearing on the walls, pillars, and beams in their home.
Residents are also recommended to look out for gas leak signs, and should it happen, open windows and leave the house immediately while notifying gas companies to conduct a thorough examination.
