A large earthquake struck Taiwan on Saturday, rattling buildings in the capital of Taipei.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the 6.4-magnitude quake was centered off the eastern coast of Taiwan, about 16 miles (25 kilometers) from Hua-lien. It struck at a depth of 28 miles (45 kilometers). The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center did not immediately issue any warning.

Local TV reports said four minor casualties were reported in the capital. The reports said Taipei's subways and the island's high speed railroad were suspended.

There was some damage to property in a community near the quake's epicenter.

Earthquakes frequently rattle Taiwan but most are minor and cause little or no damage.
