3.6 quake 30 Nov 2:06 am (GMT -10)
The United States Geological Survey (USGS) reported a magnitude 3.6 quake in the Hawaii near Volcano Village only 6 minutes ago. The earthquake hit early morning on Monday 30 November 2020 at 2.06 am local time at a very shallow depth of 0.4 mile. 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 identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 3.6 as well.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake was probably felt by many people in the area of the epicenter. It should not have caused significant damage, other than objects falling from shelves, broken windows, etc. Weak shaking might have been felt in Volcano Village (pop. 2,600) located 3 miles from the epicenter, Fern Forest (pop. 900) 10 miles away, Eden Roc (pop. 900) 12 miles away, Fern Acres (pop. 1,500) 14 miles away, and Mountain View (pop. 3,900) 15 miles away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Hawaiian Paradise Park (pop. 11,400) located 23 miles from the epicenter, Hilo (pop. 43,300) 25 miles away, and Hōlualoa (pop. 8,500) 47 miles away.
