    San Francisco and Southern California is south of the Cascade region.

    USGS has issued an Outlook for the region.
    https://pubs.er.usgs.gov/publication/fs20163020

    It relates to the San Andreas Fault and related faults down through southern California into Baja California in Mexico.

    North of San Francisco is Santa Rosa. USGS has traced the Rodgers Creek Fault through Santa Rosa
