A surveillance camera in a hostel captured the moment when a deadly quake struck Taiwan's Hualien on Tuesday (Feb. 6, 2018). People are seen running out of the building as the magnitude 6.4 quake hit the area while furniture and other items in the room are displaced violently. At least 10 people were killed and 265 others injured, while about 58 people were still missing, officials said. Taiwan, a self-ruled island that China considers part of its territory, lies near the junction of two tectonic plates and is prone to earthquakes. More than 600 soldiers and 1,300 police have been deployed to help with rescue efforts. Credit: Reuters
