A 4.4-magnitude earthquake hit near Fontana, Calif., on Wednesday morning, according to a Jan. 15 report from KTLA.com. The epicenter of the quake that occurred at 1:35 a.m. was 3 miles north of Fontana and 5 miles north of Rialto, measured at 3.2 miles in depth. There have not been any injuries or major damages reported.

This earthquake definitely made itself known to residents in this inland area of California. The reaction of long-time California residents to significant earthquakes is always interesting to people from other less-shaky parts of the country. One resident told KTLA that they just went back to bed!

Looking back, this earthquake comes only two days away from the 20th anniversary of the 1994 Northridge earthquake. That 6.7 quake left 60 people dead, and there were billions of dollars in damages.

The United States Geological Survey provides an interesting map that differentiates which parts of California could actually feel the earthquake.
