The northern segment of the San Andreas fault runs offshore at Point Arena. After that, it runs underwater along the coast until it nears Cape Mendocino, where it begins to bend to the west, terminating at the Mendocino Triple Junction.

Anyone but me think this might be a problem if drilling occurs?
