4.8-magnitude quake rattles Hawaii Island; no tsunami threat
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A 4.8-magnitude quake rattled Hawaii Island late Tuesday.
The earthquake, which struck about 9:30 p.m., was centered about 8 miles southeast of Pahala at a depth of about 20 miles. Residents across Hawaii Island and as far away as Oahu reported feeling the temblor.
There were no immediate reports of damage and officials confirmed the quake did not pose a tsunami threat.
Hawaiian Volcano Observatory said the quake had no apparent impact on Mauna Loa or Kilauea volcanoes.
It was part of a seismic swarm under the Pahala area that’s been going on since 2019.
Officials said aftershocks are possible in the coming days to weeks.
