HILO, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - A 4.5-magnitude earthquake shook parts of Hawaii Island early Monday morning.
There was no tsunami threat, according to the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center.
The quake — which struck around 4:42 a.m. — was centered approximately 4 miles east of Papaikou at a depth of 26 miles, officials said.
The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory said, “The depth, location, and recorded seismic waves of the earthquake suggest a source due to bending of the oceanic plate from the weight of the Hawaiian island chain, a common source for earthquakes in this area. Aftershocks are possible and could be felt.”
No damage or injuries have been reported.
