A well known skyscraper in downtown Shenzhen, China, started to shake for unknown reasons on Tuesday afternoon, leading to an emergency evacuation of thousands of people.
The Shenzhen Emergency Management Bureau said it had received reports that the SEG Plaza, a 20-year-old, 79-floor building with a height close to the Empire State Building in New York, was wobbling and that authorities were still investigating the matter.
The bureau said that there had not been an earthquake in the city when the shaking took place at around 1:50pm. The local weather report also showed a wind speed in Shenzhen of around 27km per hour, a speed unlikely to cause the shaking of high-rise buildings.
Investigation is still ongoing.
