Two large earthquakes rattled Russia on Monday, but no tsunami threat was issued for Hawaii.
About 1:48 p.m. Hawaii time, a 7.4 magnitude quake was detected in Russia.
Less than an hour later, a 7.8 quake rattled the same Lomandorskiye Ostrave region of Russia.
The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said the quakes could generate tsunami waves for coastlines near the epicenter in Russia.
