HONOLULU (AP) - No injuries were reported, but some people had their sleep interrupted when three earthquakes rattled Kau early Saturday.
The U.S. Geological Survey says a magnitude-3.9 earthquake hit off the coast of Kau at 2:26 a.m. Saturday.
The USGS said that the quake was centered about 11 miles east-southeast of Naalehu and 54 miles south-southwest of Hilo.
A magnitude-2.0 earthquake struck in the same area about two minutes later.
A third quake, with a magnitude of 2.9, hit on the other side of the island in Kamuela at 4:24 a.m.
There were no reports of significant damage or injuries from any of the quakes.
