An earthquake has shaken parts of Hawaii, but it was not strong enough to generate a tsunami threat to the state.

The quake was measured at a preliminary magnitude 3.8, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.  It was centered just north of the coast of Molokai. The earthquake happened at 4:42 p.m. HST.

Again, there is no tsunami threat to Hawaii. Here is a link to the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center.
