Fault Lines in California --image from NASA

EO Newsroom: New Images - 1906 San Francisco Earthquake

This image shows the topography of the region using data from NASA's Shuttle Radar Topography Mission. Several faults, including the San Andreas, are clearly indicated. As you can see, the fault does not actually go through San Francisco, but just to the west of it.
