Taipei, Dec. 10 (CNA) Train and metro services were temporarily halted in some parts of Taiwan after a 6.7 magnitude earthquake rocked the country Thursday night.

According to Taiwan Railways Administration (TRA), trains operating in areas north of Miaoli and in Yilan ceased operations and will resume operations only after inspections confirm the railway tracks have not been damaged.

Trains from Hualien and Changhua to Chiayi reduced speed and will only return to normal operations after the rails and electric cables have been inspected, TRA said.

The Taiwan High Speed Rail Corporation said some train services between Nangkang and Taichung were delayed while inspections are carried out.    [FULL  STORY]
