Rangers shut down the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park Monday after a series of more than 260 small earthquakes shook the Kilauea Volcano.

The closure and an evacuation of campers were a precaution. Geologists were trying to determine the long-term implications of Sunday's rare series of small earthquakes, the Honolulu Star-Bulletin reported.

Most of the quakes measured less than 3.0 on the Richter Scale, and the largest was about 4.0. None of the jolts was considered large enough to trigger a tsunami.

"It just raises our eyebrows," Pacific Tsunami Warning Center Geophysicist Barry Hirshorn told the newspaper. "At this time, there's no danger of a tsunami. But we advise anyone near the water to please stay away and to avoid the (lava) benches because they're very fragile. Any significant shake can knock them off."

Geologists said the earthquakes were caused by a buildup of magma and might result in new eruption vents at Kilauea, which has spewed lava continuously since 1983.
