A message from COUNTY OF HAWAII

This is a Civil Defense message for Thursday, May 3, 2018 at 10:47 AM.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center reports an earthquake occurred at approximately 10:31 AM today.

This earthquake was not large enough to cause a tsunami for the island of Hawai’i.  I say again, there is no tsunami threat to the island of Hawai’i.

Preliminary data indicates that the earthquake measuring a magnitude of 4.6 was centered in the vicinity of the south flank of Kilauea Volcano.

As in all earthquakes, be aware of the possibility of aftershocks.  If the earthquake was strongly felt in your area, precautionary checks should be made for any damages; especially to utility connections of gas, water, and electricity.

If any additional information becomes available, you will be notified.  Thank you.  This is your Hawai’i County Civil Defense Agency.
