Hawaii Earthquake with a 5.3 magnitude hits the Big Island

Centered 25 miles south of Hilo and 5.8 miles below the surface of the Earth, the 5.3 magnitude quake knocked items off shelves in at least one Hilo home and caused a flurry of activity briefly overloading cell phone lines. From a vantage point above Hilo, electricity appears to remain on throughout the town. HAWAII REPORTER
