HONOLULU — A small earthquake hit Hawaii on Thursday, with a jolt felt across Honolulu.

The US Geological Survey said the magnitude 3.6 temblor struck at 2:12 p.m. (0015 GMT Friday), about 12 miles (19 kilometers) deep in the Kaiwi Channel, between the islands of Oahu and Molokai.

There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage. No tsunami was generated.

The quake that lasted for several seconds shook homes and people throughout Oahu, from high-rise buildings in downtown Honolulu to the tourist district of Waikiki. People about 160 miles (257 kilometers) away on Maui reported feeling the quake, the USGS said.
