An earthquake described by one authority as "a mild jolt" shook things up this morning in the Inland Empire, according to cbs2. The 4.3 magnitude quake hit at 4:03 a.m. and was centered "about 3 miles west-northwest of Beaumont," in the San Gorgonio Pass, which is 12 miles east of Moreno Valley and 71 miles east of Los Angeles, an area born of the San Andreas Fault system itself. So far there have been no reports of damage. Earlier this week a 4.3 quake rattled on the Banning branch of the same large fault system.
