    TAINAN, Taiwan (AP) — Rescuers raced to find additional survivors after a powerful, shallow earthquake struck southern Taiwan before dawn Saturday and collapsed a high-rise residential complex, killing at least seven people and sending scores to hospital. Rescuers pulled 249 survivors from the rubble in the worst-hit Tainan city, and about eight people remained unaccounted for.
