WAIMEA, Hawaii >> A series of small aftershocks continue the morning after a 4.5-magnitude earthquake struck the northern part of Hawaii's Big Island.

Wednesday's quake struck 13 miles southeast of Waimea, followed by dozens of smaller temblors.

The U.S. Geological Survey says residents across the island reported feeling light to moderate shaking. There were no reports of damage and no tsunami alert was issued.

Seismologist Weston Thelen says it's normal for the aftershock sequence to continue for several days.

There were about five small quakes ranging in magnitude from 2.1 to 2.5 Thursday morning.
