Weak earthquake, magnitude 3.0, northeast of Pahala (Hawaii County, Hawaii), Hawaii, USA
Weak earthquake, magnitude 3.0 – 5.1 km north of Pahala, Hawaii County, USA, on Friday, August 20, 2021 at 12:39 am local time
The US Geological Survey reported that a 3.0-magnitude earthquake occurred just 11 minutes ago near Pahala, Hawaii County, Hawaii, in Hawaii, United States. According to the Institute, the most important national and international agency for seismic activity in the United States, the earthquake occurred on Friday, August 20, 2021, just after midnight at 12:39 am local time at a depth of 20 miles below the epicenter. . The strength, exact location of the epicenter and depth of the quake can be corrected in the next few hours, while seismologists manually evaluate the data and refine their calculations.
A second agency, the European Mediterranean Seismological Center (EMSC), gave the earthquake a magnitude of 3.0.
Based on initial seismic data and initial calculations, no damage is expected and the earthquake may not have been felt.

Even if you don’t feel itEven though you were around, this is interesting information that you might like I can share! Original earthquake reports from users are of great interest to earthquake research, as they help in improving models related to ground vibrations and thus potential earthquake risks. You can use Fix your device’s position or drag the animated marker on the map to your location to indicate your location at the time of the earthquake (optional). Thank you very much!
Compare earthquake data from different agencies
Tip: The more different agencies report the same earthquake, the more reliable the data and the more accurate one can derive the average value for the magnitude, depth, etc. It usually takes a few hours for the seismic data to be accurately assessed and for the information to be of reliable accuracy. This often causes the volume and other data to correct up or down over and over again in the first few hours.
