A magnitude-5.0 earthquake and several small aftershocks shook Hawaii on Sunday, but there were no immediate reports of serious damage or injuries.

The National Weather Service said there is no threat of a tsunami.

The quake struck near Kae'na Point in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park on the Big Island at 4:36 p.m. at a depth of five miles, according to a report from the U.S. Geological Survey.

The epicenter was about 25 miles south of Hilo and 220 miles southeast of Honolulu.

A magnitude-3.0 aftershock jolted the area about 10 minutes later.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
