Hawaiian Earthquake

We mainlanders don't often think of Hawaii as an earthquake zone; perhaps we think of the spectacular but generally benign eruptions of the volcanos on the Big Island, with red-hot flows of lava tumbling into the sea. But where there are volcanos, there are earthquakes, and one happened this morning. Google Maps has an indicator to show where it happened. I'm sure you'll join me in sending best wishes go out to the people of the Kona Coast, who took the brunt of the temblor.

I still want to go to the Big Island most of any of the Hawaiian Islands, earthquakes or no. One day.
