Small 3.1 quake hits near Hawaiian Ocean View, Hawaii

3.1 quake 24 Nov 9:15 pm (GMT -10)
An earthquake of magnitude 3.1 occurred only 6 minutes ago 26 miles northeast of Hawaiian Ocean View, Hawaii, the United States Geological Survey (USGS) reported.
The quake hit at a moderately shallow depth of 20 miles beneath the epicenter near Pāhala in the evening on Tuesday 24 November 2020 at 9.15 pm local time. The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be revised within the next few hours or minutes as seismologists review data and refine their calculations, or as other agencies issue their report.
Our monitoring service at VolcanoDiscovery identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 3.1 as well.
Despite its relatively small magnitude, the quake could probably be felt very close to the epicenter. Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Pāhala (pop. 1,400) located 5 miles from the epicenter, Naalehu (pop. 900) 16 miles away, Naalehu (pop. 900) 16 miles away, Wai‘ōhinu (pop. 200) 18 miles away, Volcano Village (pop. 2,600) 18 miles away, Hawaiian Ocean View (pop. 4,400) 26 miles away, and Mountain View (pop. 3,900) 29 miles away. In Hawaiian Acres (pop. 2,700, 31 miles away), the quake was probably not felt.
