Noah speaks with reporter Andrea Chen about the earthquake that struck Taiwan early in Tuesday morning local time. It's estimated that more than 1700 people were killed in the quake, and 4000 injured. The quake's magnitude was estimated at 7-point-6 on the Richter Scale, roughly the same strength as the quake in northwest Turkey last month.
