<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Corona - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.

The boundaries of the ZIP Code can be changed, re-assigned, eliminated or overlapped with other ZIP Codes. So keep in mind that any given ZIP Code is only 'loosely' associated with a city (such as Corona). When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Corona or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).
