A 5.3 magnitude earthquake hit Hawaii shaking the Big Island but officials said there was no danger of a tsunami.
According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), the temblor struck the western side of the island about 12 miles east of Kalaoa and 46 miles west of Hilo.
They also said the depth of the earthquake was around 8 miles. The USGS also received hundreds of reports of shaking from Hilo to Kailua-Kona, with some reporting moderate to strong shaking.
The quake triggered a rockfall on Highway 11 and a large bolder to come down on Highway 19-Queen Kaahumanu at the Hapuna Junction, according to the Hawaii Civil Defense.
Over 3,000 Hawaii Electric Light customers were left without power, but electricity was quickly restored.
“I heard it before I felt it,” Hawaii Island resident Grace Emanuel told Hawaii News Now. “Everything started shaking … I looked up and my entire house was shaking back and forth.”
There were no immediate reports of injuries from the earthquake, but a 3.0 magnitude aftershock occurred within 15 minutes of the initial earthquake.
The Biblical prophecies (Matthew 24, Luke 21) foretell that earthquakes will be a sign of the Last Days indicating the coming end of the age and the nearing appearance of Jesus Christ.
