Magnitude 5.3 earthquake strikes near Hawaii | | Tucson, Arizona


PAHALA, Hawaii (AP) – The U.S. Geological Survey is revising the magnitude of an earthquake off the southeast coast of Hawaii to 5.3.

Russell Roberts‘s insight:

The earthquake occurred mid-afternoon today (Tuesday).  According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the 5.3 temblor was centered about 34 miles southeast of Pahala at a depth of 25 miles.  Hawaii County Civil Defense Administrator Darryl Oliveira said no tsunami was generated by the moderate earthquake.  The earthquake was also felt on Oahu and Maui.  Aloha, Russ.
