3.0 quake 13 Jan 3:34 pm (GMT -10)
According to preliminary data, the quake was located at a shallow depth of 6.2 miles. Shallow earthquakes are felt more strongly than deeper ones as they are closer to the surface. 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.
A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 3.0 earthquake as well.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Volcano Village (pop. 2,600) located 13 miles from the epicenter, Fern Forest (pop. 930) 13 miles away, and Eden Roc (pop. 940) 15 miles away. In Fern Acres (pop. 1,500, 17 miles away), Mountain View (pop. 3,900, 20 miles away), Ainaloa (pop. 3,000, 20 miles away), Hawaiian Paradise Park (pop. 11,400, 25 miles away), and Hilo (pop. 43,300, 32 miles away), the quake was probably not felt.
