The magnitude of that overnight earthquake has been upped a tick. Originally reported as a 4.1, the adjusted number is now 4.2 on the Richter Scale according to the U.S. Geological Survey’s Hawaiian Volcano Observatory on the Big Island.
The temblor occurred at 2:37 a.m. today and was felt across Maui County. There were no aftershocks and no tsunami threat was issued by the Pacific Tsunami Center on O’ahu.
Earlier Friday the center said it estimated the quake at 4.1 which was reported at 2:37 a.m. Friday in the “deep ocean” southwest of Lanai.
But the USGS said although the magnitude was initially estimated at 4.0, a more detailed seismic analyses resulted in a final magnitude of 4.2. It occurred in the ocean about 4 miles deep and 34 miles west-southwest of Maunaloa, Molokai.
