TAIPEI, April 3 (Reuters) - An earthquake offshore Taiwan with a magnitude of 7.2 rocked Taipei, the capital, on Wednesday morning, knocking out power in several parts of the city and sparking a tsunami warning for the islands of southern Japan and the Philippines.

Taiwan television stations showed footage of some collapsed buildings in Hualien, near the quake's epicentre, and media reported some people were trapped.

The quake could be felt as far as Shanghai, according to a Reuters witness.

The epicentre was just off the coast of eastern county of Hualien, in waters off eastern coastline of Taiwan Island, the Taiwan central weather administration said.

Japan issued an evacuation advisory for the coastal areas of the southern prefecture of Okinawa. Tsunami waves of up to 3 metres were expected to reach large areas of Japan's southwestern coast, according to the Japan Meteorological Agency, which put the quake magnitude at 7.5.

The nationalist government was composed of warlords who were famously inept and corrupt. They made the communists look good in comparison. Joseph Stilwell, the American commander of the China-Burma-India theatre hated Chang Kai Shek. TBF the Taiwanese government has improved dramatically in the ensuing decades. But they didn't put up much of a fight against Mao's army in 1948.

Tectonic instability is the planet's reaction to overheating-- think of it as a planetary reflex, not unlike a wet dog instinctively twitching its body to release moisture off its coat.
