Basketball is fun but what about playing basketball during an earthquake? Yup, during the Maui Invitational Tuesday evening, a 4.7 magnitude earthquake hit Hawaii between Maui and the Big Island. Thankfully, no deaths were reported during the Maui earthquake.

The Maui earthquake was reported at 6:34pm local time Tuesday and hit 10 miles south of Makena, Maui. Although no major damage was reported, tremors from the Maui earthquake were felt at the Lahaina Civic Center where the Maui Invitational was taking place. The first signs of an earthquake were felt early during the semifinal game where Connecticut defeated Michigan State. The actual 4.7 Maui earthquake was during another semifinal between the University of Kentucky and Washington. The quake rattled rims and chairs for about five seconds.

‘I felt the ground shaking and the rim was moving,’ said University of Washington player Isaiah Thomas, ‘I didn’t know if it was an earthquake.’

In terms of earthquakes, the Maui earthquake was relatively minor, striking only 11 miles beneath the earth’s surface. A tsunami warning was not issued. The last big quake to rock Hawaii was October 15, 2006 on the west side of the Big Island and registered 6.7 on the Richter Scale.
