Aftershocks are still rumbling through Hawaii two days after the earthquake there.

One registered a preliminary magnitude of 3.9 early today. That's far shy of the 6.7 jolt of the original quake, the strongest to hit the Hawaiian islands in more than two decades.

A whole different kind of shock is coming from the bill. Early damage estimates are $46 million dollars, though that's expected to climb as more damage reports come in.

Federal emergency officials will take a look for themselves today, as they survey the damage by air and on the ground.

Otherwise, life is returning to normal, not just for residents but also tourists, who continue to arrive by the planeload.
