3.6M Earthquake Shakes Big Island
Hawaiian Volcano Observatory reports a 3.6 magnitude earthquake shook the Big Island Monday morning just before 10:30 a.m.
The earthquake was located 5.6 miles north-west of Ka’ena Point; 8.4 miles south-southeast of Kilauea Summit; and 8.5 miles south of Volcano, at a depth of 5.3 miles.
According to the United States Geological Survey’s “Did You Feel It?” website, the earthquake was felt as far as Captain Cook on the Big Island and in other areas, including in the Hilo and Puna areas. One individual reportedly felt the earthquake in Maui County.
A couple of additional earthquakes were also reported by HVO in the same region before and after the 3.6 magnitude earthquake.
