HILO, Hawaii - An earthquake on Monday jolted the Big Island of Hawaii, which is already under a hurricane watch and a tropical storm warning.
The magnitude 5.3 temblor struck at 7:38 p.m. local time, about 25 miles south of Hilo, according to a preliminary report from the U.S. Geological Survey.
There were no immediate reports of injuries.

This proves beyond any shadow of a doubt that these hurricanes are caused by Global Warming and HAARP.
Clearly, Bush does not like... islanders.

Hey, do you guys remember during the extremely active Hurricane season two years ago (with Katrina and Rita and all) there were tremors and quakes in the area of the hurricane path and we discussed that maybe storms could cause seismic activity? I believe, in whatever thread that discussion took place, there was even a link to a paper written by a scientist who speculated the same.
Just another data point in that theory I would think. O_O

I thought of this myself. Hurricanes are a massive low pressure system. When that kind of pressure is put on the earth, I would not doubt if the earth quakes because of it. When I went through Hurricane Elisha in '83 in Texas, our ears popped right before it hit. The pressure gradient was extremely low. Just my two cents...
