A 4.6-magnitude earthquake rattled the Big Island on Sunday morning.

The quake occurred about 6:43 a.m., and was centered about nine miles southeast of Waikoloa, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The USGS said the quake had a depth of 20 miles.

Hundreds of residents reported feeling the temblor, including some people as far away from the earthquake’s epicenter as Waianae and Pearl City.

The highest number of “felt reports” made to the USGS were on the Big Island and Maui. Residents said they experienced moderate shaking.

Waikoloa Village resident Lynne Williams said she was awoken by the quake.

“It was a pretty good shaker!” she said.
