A preliminary magnitude 6.2 earthquake struck just south of the Big Island of Hawaii at 2:48 p.m. Sunday afternoon, according to the United States Geological Survey.

The quake struck at a depth of almost 22 miles, and its epicenter was 17.3 miles south-southeast of Naalehu, Hawaii.

Though the Big Island of Hawaii is the largest, a majority of the state’s residents live on Oahu, a couple of hundred miles from the epicenter.
