Hawaii Rocked Aftershocks Following 6.2 Magnitude Earthquake


The southern tip of Hawaii continued to rock on Monday when several aftershocks followed Sunday's 6.2 magnitude earthquake.

  • The most significant aftershocks -- which occurred in Naalehu, located on the Big Island -- measured 4.1 and 2.8 on the Richter Scale, according to the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency. Like their more powerful predecessor, the aftershocks did not cause any injuries or significant structural damage, the agency reports.
  • Sunday's 6.8 magnitude tremblor occurred at a 2:48 p.m. PST. Despite its magnitude, authorities say they don't except a tsunami to result from the quake.
  • What's scarier: an earthquake or a tornado?
