A 5.0 in Hawaii, and we’re not talking the famous police TV show, nor are we talking surfing terms…
A large, and rare magnitude 5.0 earthquake has struck the big island of Hawaii near the flanks of Kilauea Volcano. (now revised up to M5.2)
Seen in a screenshot from Google Earth, the earthquake epicenter is on the Southeast portion of Kilauea volcano.
Kilauea recently underwent a lava lake rise, and subsequent draining event over the past 2 months, accompanied by a flurry of smaller earthquakes, now we see a larger event strike near the same location.
