Hawaii, an Island Paradise with Gentle Breezes, and the Occasional Earthquake

"Earthquake jolts Big Island"
Hawaii247.org (April 21, 2009)

"A 4.2 magnitude earthquake jolted the Big Island Tuesday at 4:58 p.m. The epicenter was in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park...." (2009 April 22 02:58:09 UTC)

That's a significant quake. This notification was all I could find about it at the moment.

Thanks to bnsullivan on Twitter, for providing the URL - and the heads-up.
UPDATE (April 22, 2009)

bnsullivan left a comment, which updates this post:

"FYI, I have not heard of any damage caused by yesterday's quake, but it was unsettling as it came just a week after a 5.0 magnitude quake in nearly the same spot. That is making everyone edgy.

We are accustomed to the ones that amount to no more than a little jiggle, but larger ones are another story. (We had a 6.8 a couple of years ago that did substantial damage.)

Here is a web page run by the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory that monitors Recent Earthquakes in Hawaii.

Thanks, Bobbi

Actually, some of yesterday's news may be here. Or maybe last week's.
The software and science stuff might still be interesting, though. Or not.
