Mayor Harry Kim signed a second supplementary emergency proclamation on Thursday due to to the ongoing Kilauea eruption.
The proclamation states that a state of emergency continues to exist due to threat of imminent disaster on Hawaii Island, effective today and continuing for 60 days or until further act by the mayor’s office.
Also on Thursday, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center reported an earthquake measuring a magnitude of 4.5 occurred at the Kilauea summit at approximately 10:57 a.m. The earthquake was not large enough to cause a tsunami for Hawaii Island.
As in all earthquakes, be aware of the possibility of after shocks. If the earthquake was strongly felt in your area, precautionary checks should be made for any damages; especially to utility connections of gas, water and electricity.
