    Magnitude 6.3 quake wakes up Hawaii residents
    Updated Sun. Oct. 15 2006 2:33 PM ET

    Associated Press

    HONOLULU -- An earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 6.3 struck Hawaii early Sunday morning, waking up residents and knocking out power.


    The U.S. Geological Survey also reported several aftershocks, including one measuring a magnitude of 5.8. No damage reports were immediately available.


    The quake occurred at 7:07 a.m. local time, 16 kilometres north-northwest of Kailua Kona, a town on the west coast of the Big Island, said Don Blakeman, a geophysicist at the National Earthquake Information Center, part of the U.S. Geological Survey.


    Blakeman said researchers were still trying to ascertain how many aftershocks struck and how large.


    Blakeman said there was no risk of a Pacific-wide tsunami, but a possibility of significant wave activity in Hawaii.


    The quake occurred about 250 kilometres to the southeast of Honolulu, the state capital, in Oahu.

    Glad you were able to get through, and I hope they continue to stay safe.

    Hopefully the "wave action" mentioned on the news won't materialize.
