By Wendy Osher
There were two earthquakes of interest reported overnight–the first, a 3.3 earthquake was reported 32 miles NE of Hāna, Maui at 11:59 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 23, 2014; and a separate, a 6.0 earthquake located about 6 miles SSW of Napa, Caifornia reported about 20 minutes later at 12:20 a.m. HST (3:20 a.m. Pacific Time near the epicenter).
Neither incident generated a tsunami threat or advisory for Hawaiʻi; however, CNN is reporting that dozens were injured, three critically in the Northern California quake.
