The quakes struck the island between 11am Tuesday June 5 and 11am today.

The USGS’s latest earthquake map shows that out of the 82 earthquakes to strike the world in the last 24 hours, with a magnitude of at least 2.5, more than half have been in the island of Hawaii.

Last night in a statement, the USGS said: “Vigorous eruption of lava continues from the lower East Rift Zone fissure system in the area of Leilani Estates and Lanipuna Gardens.”

More than 115 homes have been destroyed from the molten lava flows in the four weeks since lava began flowing.

The earthquake on Sunday sent an ash plume 8,000 feet into the sky, but it did not cause a tsunami threat, according to the Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre.

According to Brian Shiro, supervisory geophysicist at the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory, there were 500 quakes in the summit area of Kilauea in 24 hours over the weekend, which is the highest rate ever measured.
