About 7:43 p.m., the warning center said there didn't appear to be any threat to Hawaii of damaging tsunami waves but that they were still running models.
The earthquake occurred off the coast of Chiapas, Mexico.
Tsunami waves reaching more than 3 meters above the tide level are possible along some coasts of Mexico, the warning center said.
