The catastrophic 921 Earthquake (中文) struck Taiwan in the middle of the night on September 21st, 1999, killing and injuring thousands, destroying innumerable buildings, and reshaping entire landscapes. Emanating from an epicenter on the Chelungpu Fault 車籠埔斷層 in Jíjí 集集, Nántóu 南投, its effects were felt all around central Taiwan. Numerous memorials and reminders of the disaster remain, many of which have been documented here.
