From Hawaii News Now:
BIG ISLAND (HawaiiNewsNow) –
A 5.5-magnitude quake rattled the Big Island Sunday afternoon, US Geological Survey officials said. The quake rumbled an area near Kilauea Volcano just before 4 p.m., sending an ash cloud 8,000 feet into the air.
A Civil Defense alert went out across the state informing Hawaii residents of the quake, but there is no statewide danger. “What is happening here is that this is an explosion that’s actually giving rise to this earthquake,” said Westen Thelen, a United States Geological Survey seismologist. “It does measure a 5.5, but as it turns out, that energy is being released so slowly that for the most part it doesn’t feel like a standard magnitude 5.5 earthquake would.”
