3.5 quake 6 Mar 11:17 am (GMT -10)
A magnitude 3.5 earthquake near Hilo, Hawaii County, Hawaii, USA, was reported only 15 minutes ago by the United States Geological Survey, considered the key international and national agency that monitors seismic activity in the US. The earthquake occurred at a very shallow depth of 1.2 miles beneath the epicenter in the morning on Saturday 6 March 2021 at 11:17 am local time. 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.
A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 3.5 earthquake as well.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Honaunau-Napoopoo (pop. 2,600) located 18 miles from the epicenter, Captain Cook (pop. 3,400) 22 miles away, Volcano Village (pop. 2,600) 23 miles away, Honalo (pop. 2,400) 23 miles away, Honalo (pop. 2,400) 23 miles away, Holualoa (pop. 8,500) 26 miles away, and Hawaiian Ocean View (pop. 4,400) 29 miles away. In Hilo (pop. 43,300, 38 miles away), the quake was probably not felt.
