A magnitude-2.8 earthquake shook the Inland Empire early Tuesday morning.

The quake, located four miles north-northwest of Fontana and five miles west-northwest of Rialto in San Bernardino County, struck at approximately 3 a.m.

 

Residents report that they heard the earthquake before they felt it.

"Just had an earthquake in the Rialto area," Malinda Hernandez posted on Facebook. "Heard a rumble and then a lil jolt."

Another viewer echoed Hernandez’s thoughts.

“I heard it before I felt it, then a quick jolt,” Elisett Angelique said.

A magnitude-4.4 earthquake struck the same region in January.
