    VOLCANO, Hawaii – Officials say a strong earthquake shook parts of Hawaii's Big Island but no damage has been reported.

    U.S. Geological Survey's Hawaiian Volcano Observatory says a temblor with a magnitude of 5.0 struck Tuesday at 12:44 p.m. about 8 miles southeast of volcano Kilauea's summit.

    The survey says it received more than 350 calls within half an hour of the quake from but no damage was immediately reported.

    The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center says the quake isn't expect to generate a tsunami.

    It's a wise crack one of my friends from Hawaii said a couple of times ... just makes me chuckle and thought I'd share the lightheartedness a little. Read my sig.

    Call me a cynic but I don't want to be 74. However, if it hits on any fault line ... the planet is royally fucked.
