An earthquake of magnitude 3.0 occurred only 10 minutes ago 11 miles southeast of Honaunau-Napoopoo, Hawaii, United States, the United States Geological Survey reported.
The quake hit at a very shallow depth of 4.6 miles beneath the epicenter near Honaunau-Napoopoo, Hawaii County, Hawaii, USA, early morning on Wednesday 3 March 2021 at 6:17 am 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.
