Small earthquakes strike near Oahu and Volcano

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 2:16 a.m. HST, Apr 12, 2013

Two small earthquakes were felt on Oahu and Hawaii island Thursday.

A magnitude 3.3 earthquake was centered about 9 miles southeast of Volcano on Hawaii island at 7:25 a.m.

Earlier in the morning, a small magnitude 2.8 earthquake in the channel between Molokai and Oahu was felt by a few people in Windward Oahu.

The earthquake was too small to generate a tsunami. It struck at 4:28 a.m. about 30 miles east of Kailua and north of the west end of Molokai at a depth of about 16.6 miles.

The USGS Did you feel it? website received reports from 13 people in Kailua and Kaneohe, who felt the earthquake.
