Quick Reference

A fault line extending through the length of coastal California. Seismic activity is common along its course and is due to two crustal plates sliding past each other along the line of the fault. The city of San Francisco lies close to the fault, and such movement caused the devastating earthquake of 1906 and a further convulsion in 1989.
