HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A magnitude 4.2 earthquake was felt by dozens on Oahu Friday night.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the earthquake occurred at about 8:40 p.m. It was centered 20 miles northeast of Marine Corps Base Kaneohe at a depth of more than eight miles.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center did not report any tsunami from the quake, which was initially reported as a magnitude 4.0.

Dozens of residents in the Kailua, Kaneohe and Waimanalo area reported feeling the jolt, which was also felt by a handful of people on Molokai. There were a few reports of people feeling it in Honolulu and Aiea.

"Just very quick but like shaking, and we both just looked at each other and I told my husband, 'that was an earthquake,' and he said that was definitely an earthquake," said Kailua resident Debbie Parke. She said the shaking lasted three to five seconds.
