A 5.3-magnitude quake rattled the Big Island on Wednesday, US Geological Survey officials said.

The tremor, which struck about 10:57 a.m. was not strong enough to generate a tsunami, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said. The shallow earthquake was located about 5 kilometers west-southwest of Volcano.
