At 11:20pm on Thursday, July 2nd (2020-07-03 09:20:01 UTC), a M4.6 earthquake shook the south flank of Kīlauea at a depth of about 4.2 miles.

The estimated epicenter is within Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park beneath Pulama Pali, initially placed near the hairpin turn in the Chain of Craters Road.

Civil Defense and the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center report that despite the widespread reports, the event is too small to generate waves and “there is NO TSUNAMI THREAT to the Island.

Those in the nearby Volcano communities report this as the heaviest shaking since 2018, perhaps due to proximity and shallower depth.

Given its location and depth beneath the South Flank, this event falls into the post-2018 M6.9 grouping accommodating continuing flank movement.

This does not on its own indicate any change in the non-eruption, but we will continue to monitor USGS feeds and reports for any changes warranting further public update.

Two months ago, the USGS announced: ‘We Don’t Want to be Alarmist, But we Also Need to Tell the Public That There Is an Increasing Possibility of Explosive Eruptions at Kilauea Volcano in Hawaii?
