A magnitude 6.4 quake struck near the coastal city of Hualien in Taiwan late on Tuesday, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) said, killing at least two people and causing several buildings to collapse.

More than 250 people were injured in Tuesday's quake, and at least 60 people are missing.

Taiwanese authorities turned down Beijing's offer to help with the search for missing people after the recent deadly quake, having rejected the move due to own high capabilities, the deputy minister of Taiwan's Mainland Affairs Council said Thursday.

Taiwan has been hit by a second natural disaster in two days. Authorities said more than 140 people still remain unaccounted for from one of the buildings damaged by the quake. Six mainland Chinese were also injured, the Chinese Communist Party-run People's Daily reported.

Two strong earthquakes of magnitude 5.3 and 6.1 were recorded within 45 minutes of each other Sunday night near Hualien. Dozens of smaller tremors have been felt throughout the island over several days.

Residents waited and watched anxiously as emergency workers dressed in fluorescent orange and red suits and wearing helmets searched for residents trapped in apartment blocks.

"We're putting a priority on Hualien people being able to return home to check on their loved ones", Hsu said. Power was restored to about 1,700 homes and water returned to almost 5,000 homes on Wednesday. A major focus of the rescue effort was a residential building tilted at about a 40-degree angle.
