Hawaii Rattled by Earthquake as Hurricanes Near

Posted: Updated:
The U.S. Geological Survey reports a magnitude-4.5 earthquake has rattled Hawaii's Big Island, as two hurricanes rumbled toward the islands.
 
The temblor struck on the north tip of the Big Island, about 7 miles from Waimea at 6:24 a.m. local time.
 
The U.S. Geological Survey initially announced the quake was magnitude-4.3 and quickly upgraded it.
 
An employee of a grocery store in Waimea, a city of about 7,000, said the quake did not cause any apparent damage in the building and did not knock anything off shelves.
 
Hurricane Iselle was on course to hit the Big Island Thursday night, and was being tailed by Hurricane Julio, which strengthened early Thursday into a Category 2 storm.   (AP)
