Rescuers are still working to free people trapped after a strong earthquake hit near Taiwan's east coast causing several buildings to cave in and tilt dangerously. At least six people were killed and 76 could not be contacted following the quake.

The shifting of the buildings after the magnitude 6.4 quake late Tuesday night was likely caused by soil liquefaction, when the ground beneath a building loses its solidity under stress such as that caused by an earthquake.

Many are saying the picture below is one of the most powerful from the disaster.
