Big Island Struck by Significant Earthquake, TS ISELLE

Centered at 20.079°N, 155.793°W, a magnitude 4.5 quake struck about 12km WNW of Waimea, Hawaii at a depth of 16.8km (10.4mi, at 16:24:04 UTC on Friday.

Meantime, Tropical Storm ISELLE battered the island, knocking down trees and power lines, and forcing more than 1,200 people to evacuate their homes.

The second of two major storms, the more powerful Hurricane JULIO, is headed directly toward the archipelago.

JULIO has been upgraded to a Category 3 hurricane, with maximum sustained winds of about 195 km/h, moving toward the island at about 25 km/h.

Hawaii Gov.  Abercrombie signed an emergency proclamation on Wednesday in anticipation of the arrival of the two tropical storms.

“The proclamation, which includes the entire state, activates the Major Disaster Fund set aside by the Legislature for disaster relief. It also allows easier access to emergency resources at the state and federal levels, along with the suspension of certain laws as needed for emergency purposes,” said a statement posted on his website.

The disaster emergency relief period for the proclamation continues through August 15, 2014.

Evaluation:  A destructive widespread tsunami threat does not exist based on historical earthquake and tsunami data. However – there is the small possibility of a local or regional tsunami that could affect coasts located usually no more than a few hundred kilometers from the earthquake epicenter. Authorities in the region near the epicenter should be made aware of this possibility.
