A magnitude 3.6 earthquake shook Hawaii island's Puna district Thursday morning.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake, which struck at 8:36 a.m., was centered 25 miles south of Hilo and 17 miles south-southwest of Hawaiian Paradse Park. The epicenter was about 5.7 miles deep, according to the USGS.

The USGS' "did you feel it?" web page received several dozen responses, including two from Honokaa, about 56 miles from the epicenter.
