3.4 magnitude earthquake rattles Maui

Advertiser Staff Writer

A 3.4 magnitude earthquake shook Maui tonight at 8:39 p.m., according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The quake centered 15 miles west-south-west of Hana, Pukalani and Makawao areas. Residents reported moderate shaking from the earthquake. Police say no damages were reported the temblor.
"We have no reports of injuries or damages," said Mahina Martin, Maui county spokeswoman. "But we did receive calls from Molokai, Kula and Lahaina, even though the earthquake was on the southern slopes of Haleakala."
More than 300 people reported to the USGS Did you feel it website that they felt the shaker.
