A Hawaii quake measured at 5.3 magnitude shook the Big Island on Thursday, near the Kilauea Volcano, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
There were no immediate reports of injuries or substantial damage from the quake and the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said no tsunami was expected to result, reported Reuters.
According to the USGS, the temblor rattled the Big Island at 7:01 a.m. local time (1601 GMT) at a depth of 4.9 miles.
"As in all earthquakes, be aware of the possibility of aftershocks," Hawaii County Civil Defense said in an alert.
"If the earthquake was strongly felt in your area, precautionary checks should be made for any damages, especially to utility connections of gas, water and power," the agency said.
