Earthquake Shakes Southern California at the time of Early Morning

A magnitude-4.4 earthquake, centered in San Bernardino County, jolted a widespread area of Southern California early Wednesday morning, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The epicenter of the 1:35 a.m. earthquake was three miles north of Fontana and four miles west of Rialto, about 50 miles east of downtown Los Angeles.

"It felt like somebody (crashed) into our building," said Sgt. Chris Hice of the Rialto Police Department.
What is GIS?
A geographic information system (GIS) integrates hardware, software, and data for capturing, managing, analyzing, and displaying all forms of geographically referenced information.

GIS allows us to view, understand, question, interpret, and visualize data in many ways that reveal relationships, patterns, and trends in the form of maps, globes, reports, and charts.

A GIS helps you answer questions and solve problems by looking at your data in a way that is quickly understood and easily shared.

GIS technology can be integrated into any enterprise information system framework.
