Taipei, Feb. 12 (CNA) The Southern Taiwan Science Park (STSP), home to high-tech factories, was nearly unscathed on Feb. 6 when a magnitude 6.4 rocked southern Taiwan, toppling an apartment complex in Tainan, a municipal city in the area, according to the park’s administration.
There was no major damage or casualties in the park, the administration confirmed Friday, saying that when the quake struck, the park had at once activated its emergency response mechanism and evacuated personnel. A total of 7,455 people were evacuated that day, it said.
Some tenants, including silicon wafer foundry Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), had reported minor facility damage and production interruption due to a power outage in the wake of the temblor. [FULL STORY][
