TAIWAN: A strong earthquake shook much of Taiwan on Sunday, toppling a threestory building and temporarily trapping four people inside, stranding about 400 tourists on a mountainside, and knocking part of a passenger train off its tracks. One person died and nine people had minor injuries, officials said. TRUMP-FBI: in a segment that aired Sunday on CBS’ “60 Minutes,” President Joe Biden said the discovery of top-secret documents at former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate raised concerns that sensitive data was compromised and called it “irresponsible.” PEARL HARBOR: The remains of a sailor from Massachusetts who died when the USS Oklahoma was struck by multiple torpedoes during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941 will be buried at Arlington National Cemetery on Monday. The interment comes more than four years after the Defense POW/ MIA Accounting Agency announced that Electrician’s Mate 3rd Class Roman W. Sadlowski, of Pittsfield, was accounted for using advanced DNA and anthropological analysis. ALASKA: Floodwaters started to recede Sunday in some parts of western Alaska that were battered by the remnants of Typhoon Merbok, the worst storm in a half century, leaving debris flung by the powerful Bering Sea waves on beaches and in seaside communities.
