Original Claim

The Taiwan and New York earthquakes are linked

2 months ago

Context by Compass

The claim that the Taiwan and New York earthquakes are linked suggests a direct connection between these two seismic events. However, according to a report by Global Times, seismologists have attributed the frequent earthquakes to active tectonic plate movement but dismissed any connection between the tremors in Taiwan and New York. The New York Times reported a major 7.4-magnitude earthquake striking the eastern coast of Taiwan, while NBC News reported a 4.8-magnitude earthquake in the New York tri-state area. These reports indicate that while both regions experienced significant seismic activity, the scientific consensus is that there is no direct link between the two events. The suggestion of a link between the earthquakes in Taiwan and New York appears to be unfounded, based on the current understanding of seismic activity and tectonic plate movements.
