If you were hiding Easter eggs – but found the ground jiggling a bit early this morning, yes, it was an earthquake. A magnitude 4.1 earthquake rumbled near the Big Island Hawaii island this morning, but no tsunami was generated and there were no immediate reports of serious injuries or damage. The initial report was a magnitude 4.5, but further review by replay officials downgraded it to 4.1
The earthquake struck at 3:23 a.m. about seven miles west of Kalaloa and 10 miles northwest of Kailua-Kona at a depth of 6.2 miles, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.
The earthquake was widely felt on the Big Island and the USGS “Did You Feel It?” website reported that three people feeling it on Oahu at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam and in Aiea.
Another earthquake, estimated at magnitude 3.3, struck at 12:16 a.m. It was centered 11 miles south of Kapaau and 36 miles north-northeast of Kailua-Kona at a depth of about 16 miles.
