A strong earthquake shook an area near Japan on Friday, but was not strong enough to generate a tsunami threat to Hawaii.
The quake was measured at a magnitude 7.0, according to preliminary reports from the U.S. Geological Survey.
The earthquake happened shortly before 11 a.m. HST northwest of the Ryukyu Islands at a depth of 10 km, according to the USGS.
