A powerful earthquake struck in southern Taiwan Saturday, toppling buildings and leaving at least seven people dead and hundreds more injured, officials said, NBC News reported.
The 6.4-magnitude earthquake struck about 30 miles east of Tainan, a city of more than 1.8 million, just before 4 a.m. (3 p.m. Friday E.T.), the U.S. Geological Survey said.
At least 422 people were hurt in the quake, which caused nine buildings to topple and five more to tilt, Taiwan's National Fire Agency said.
The 16-story Wei Guan residential building in Tainan collapsed, setting off a frantic search effort that involved more than 200 firefighters, authorities said. Other buildings were left tilted at alarming angles.
Taiwan President Ma Ying-jeou said every effort was being taken to rescue survivors. A 1,200-bed shelter was established at a nearby military school.

Barawis was profiled in an episode of local public access show "Hawaii Island's Most Wanted" that was scheduled to air Friday, the day he was killed in the shooting. In a previous announcement about the show, he was listed as "considered armed and dangerous."

Deep down, the Brown family knew the water that had flowed through the pipes in their home in Flint, Michigan — the water that 3-year-old Dana had been drinking for months before anyone was warned — probably contained toxic lead, NBC News reported.
This week, they got test results that confirmed their fears.
Water Defense, the anti-fracking and safe-water activist group headed by actor Mark Ruffalo, collected samples from Oscar and Elizabeth Brown's home last weekend and brought them to an independent lab in Cincinnati for analysis.
The results, which the group shared with NBC News, show that the water coming out of the kitchen faucet, where a filter was installed after state officials finally confirmed the lead crisis this fall, didn't contain any of the heavy metal.
But a sample of the water from the bathtub, which is unfiltered, contained 16 parts per billion, higher than the threshold of 15 ppb that federal regulators say is the point at which a water system must take action to protect public health.
