3.1 quake 18 Jan 10:55 am (GMT -10)
An earthquake of magnitude 3.1 occurred in the morning on Monday 18 January 2021 at 10:55 am local time near Pāhala, Hawaii County, Hawaii, USA, as reported by the United States Geological Survey (USGS).
According to preliminary data, the quake was located at a very shallow depth of 0.2 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.
Our monitoring service identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 3.1 as well.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should not have caused any significant damage, but was probably felt by many people as light vibration in the area of the epicenter.

Weak shaking might have been felt in Naalehu (pop. 870) located 5 miles from the epicenter, and Wai'ōhinu (pop. 210) 6 miles away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Pāhala (pop. 1,400) located 7 miles from the epicenter, and Hawaiian Ocean View (pop. 4,400) 14 miles away. In Honaunau-Napoopoo (pop. 2,600, 30 miles away), Volcano Village (pop. 2,600, 30 miles away), and Captain Cook (pop. 3,400, 34 miles away), the quake was probably not felt.
