6.2 magnitude earthquake hits southern coast of Hawaii

A magnitude 6.2 earthquake stuck off the southern tip of Hawaii Sunday afternoon.

The quake hit at 2:48 p.m. PT, 18 miles south of Naalehu at a depth of about 10 miles. Naalehu is at the southern tip of the Big Island.

It was unclear if there was any significant damage to buildings or injuries.

The Hawaii Emergency Management Agency said there was no threat of a tsunami.

There were several apparent aftershocks recorded, one measuring 4.1 and another at 2.8, according to the USGS.
It could take several hours until authorities can conduct comprehensive damage assessments, especially in remote areas. Aftershocks are possible over the coming days. Officials may temporarily shut down transportation infrastructure in the tremor zone to check for damage. Minor disruptions could occur during shutdowns, but service will likely resume quickly if no damage is found. Utility outages are possible, particularly near the earthquake's epicenter. Plan accordingly for aftershocks. Consider vacating multistory buildings if operating in affected areas until authorities confirm their structural integrity. Allow additional time for air and road travel, as aftershocks may prompt brief disruptions. Seek updated information on road conditions before driving in hilly areas in the affected region due to potential landslides.
