Seismic instruments of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory (HVO) detected a volcano-tectonic earthquake with magnitude M 4 at 11 km depth beneath the Lō'ihi seamount at 18:44 local time yesterday.
Moderate shaking, with maximum Intensity of V on the Modified Mercalli Intensity Scale, has been reported across the Island of Hawai'i. At that intensity, significant damage to buildings or structures is not expected.
According to HVO Scientist-in-Charge Ken Hon, the earthquake had no apparent effect on Kīlauea or Mauna Loa volcanoes. “We see no detectable changes in activity at the summits or along the rift zones of Lōʻihi, Kīlauea, or Mauna Loa as a result of this earthquake. Aftershocks are possible and could be felt.”
