Maximum Ss and S1 in Southern California

Maximum Ss and S1 in Southern California

I'm working on a project that will require the knowledge of the maximum Ss and S1 for site class D in Southern California.
Can anyone point me in the right direction in order to find this information?
I understand we can use the tools at USGS to find site specific values, but I'm trying to find the maximum Ss and S1 in So-Cal.
Appreciate your help in advance,

RE: Maximum Ss and S1 in Southern California

Forgot to mention also, this is for an Occupancy Category I, II or III and under the ASCE7-05 Hazard maps.

Try IBC 2009 or you can go to USGS for the info
