VOLCANO, HAWAII (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A 4.4 magnitude quake rattled the Big Island on Friday afternoon, largest of dozens of quakes on Friday alone.

The tremor did not generate a tsunami, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake was centered about 2 1/2 miles from Volcano at a depth of 1 mile.

Seismic activity at Kilauea's summit has continued for weeks amid ongoing eruptions along the volcano's east rift zone.
