Ok, here's some interesting info on Oahu quakes, seems they dont happen that frequently....





"According to the 1986 catalog "Earthquakes felt on Oahu, Hawaii, and their intensities," by Doak Cox, University of Hawaii Environmental Center, August 1986. The compilation lists 113 felt and reported earthquakes from 1859 to 1986; so there were between one and two reported events a year. My guess is that that rate has continued to the present day. But those are just events that can be located. There are quite a few small shocks which don't even show up on the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center network and therefore which cannot be located. For example, eighteen months ago, a small shock shook my house on a ridge of the Koolau Mountains above east Honolulu. The same event was felt over the mountains in Waimanalo, but it never made it into the catalog (my guess is that it had a Mercalli intensity of about II".

It has been classified as extinct for 150,000 years, but wasn't the coelacanth thought to be extinct until they caught one off the coast of Africa???? Hmmmm....

Not raining on your parade or thread or anything but don't earthquakes of that magnitude happen everyday somewhere on the planet?

I'm just wondering how big a deal an earthquake of that size really is, and not with pure conspiratorial speculation around the answer.

In Hawaii region a 3.5 really isn't anything to write home about... imho!

The building code regs have even been upped to take in potential seismic events, as evidenced in this essay from Uni of Hawaii

Would you believe 49,000 a year between 3.0-3.9? That's 134 a day.

And as the OP shows, not everyone can even feel that magnitude, only some feel it.
