No tsunami threat has been issued for Hawaii following a 6.4 magnitude earthquake that struck today off of northern Japan, according to the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center.
“It’s too small” to cause any tsunami threat for the islands, said Gerard Fryer, a geophysicist with the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center.
The earthquake hit at 7.55 a.m. Japan time east of Morioka on Honshu, the largest island of Japan.
