The Big Island of Hawaii is trembling after a magnitude-5.7 earthquake.

On Friday, the Big Island of Hawaii was hit by an earthquake with a magnitude of 5.7, according to the USGS. Some shaking was felt as far away as Honolulu, which is roughly 200 miles away.

At at 10 a.m. local time, an earthquake with a depth of 6 miles and a center 11 miles south of Naalehu, Hawaii, occurred. As far as the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center was concerned, no tsunami alert was anticipated.

He initially blamed the operation for his vertigo before figuring out it was an earthquake. "All of a sudden I felt like I was getting dizzy," he explained. He contacted his emergency management team members without delay.

According to Roth, there is no tsunami danger, and "we'll probably start hearing about damage in the next hour to an hour" once the "good sized earthquake" (as he put it) has passed.

Roth has stated that he will be returning to the Big Island via the Honolulu airport in the hopes of catching an earlier flight.


A mirror and a brass lamp were knocked over by some strong shaking, according to Julia Neal, owner of Pahala Plantation Cottages. "There were quite a few of the old wooden plantation homes here, and they were rattling."

The restaurant manager at the Kona Canoe Club inside the Kona Inn Shopping Village in the seaside town of Kona, Derek Nelson

located on the western side of the island, said that although the impact was felt "big time," no damage had occurred.

Some of our knees swayed slightly because of how badly it jolted us. "Every window in the village was rattled," he remarked.
