Hawaii Island was shaken this Friday morning by an earthquake with a magnitude of 5.7, which caused tremors all around the state.

There is no threat of a tsunami in the area, according to the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center.

The U.S. Geological Survey reports that the earthquake, which struck at 10:06 a.m., had a depth of 22 miles and its center was about 1.5 miles southwest of Pahala.

Officials then lowered the magnitude from their initial assessment of 6.3 to 5.7.

At least eight minor aftershocks shook the Pahala area after the major earthquake.

The agency rated the earthquake as level VI, meaning it shook violently, although there is hope that the damage will be minimal.

Residents of the Big Island have reported hearing earthquakes even on Oahu and neighboring islands, with objects falling off shelves and photos toppling.

The Kilauea volcano is experiencing increased activity at the same time as this seismic event.

Communities on nearby islands were also affected by the earthquake, according to eyewitnesses like Malia Zannoni and Ikaika Marzo, who describe the terrible experience.

In the midst of the seismic activity, there is relief that there are no early reports of significant damage or injuries despite the intense tremors.
