A 6.8-magnitude earthquake occurred in Taiwan on September 18, and major tech firms including TSMC, United Microelectronics, AU Optronics, and Innolux Corporation saw minimal impact and are operating as usual, according to UDN, a local media outlet. The Central Taiwan Science Park Administration stated that the park continued to supply water and power and the majority of the area operated normally. Major semiconductor firms like TSMC have been working hard on countermeasures to prepare for 6-magnitude earthquakes and full-scale power cuts, according to UDN. The earthquake caused one death and 79 injuries as of 7 p.m. on September 18. [UDN, in Chinese]
