Civil defense says the quake is not large enough to cause a tsunami for the island of Hawaii. 

USGS also released new video of lava spatter from fissures near Lanipuna Gardens was captures Wednesday morning taken just before the quake at 8:20 a.m.  Lava can be seen spattering from fissures 16 and 20.

Geologists say the spattering has died down, but now you can hear gas rushing sounds.

The view from Hawaiian Volcano Observatory Wednesday morning showed sulfur dioxide plumes rising from the fissures along the rift.
