HONOLULU (AP) - No injuries were reported, but some people had their sleep interrupted when three earthquakes rattled Kau early Saturday.

The U.S. Geological Survey says a magnitude 3.9 earthquake hit off the coast of Kau at 2:26 a.m. Saturday.

The USGS says the quake was centered about 11 miles east southeast of Naalehu and 54 miles south southwest of Hilo.

A magnitude 2.0 earthquake struck in the same area about two minutes later.

A third quake, with a magnitude of 2.9, hit on the other side of the island in Kamuela at 4:24 a.m.
