There is no tsunami threat to Hawaii following a 4.3 magnitude earthquake reported near the Kilauea Summit at 3:53 a.m. on Friday, February 24, 2012.

The quake was the second one to register at over 4 in magnitude following a 4.1 tremor reported at 9:02 p.m. on Thursday, February 23, 2012.

The two moderate quakes also come following reports of a seismic swarm occurring in the same region, beginning early Wednesday morning.

Over a 14 hour period,  more than 60 earthquakes measuring at 3.2 and below, occurred in the area between the Mauna Loa and Kilauea volcanoes.
