There are three main types of fault, all of which may cause an interplate earthquake: normal, reverse (thrust) and strike-slip.Normal and reverse faulting are examples of dip-slip, where the displacement along the fault is in the direction of dip and movement on them involves a vertical component.

Region 1: Lowcountry — This region is comprised of coastal counties and coastal plain areas with mainly very young (< 2 Myr) surficial sediments; this is the source of the Summerville/Middleton Place region 1886 earthquake as well as potentially the source of earthquakes near Georgetown and Bluffton (based on paleo-liquefaction); this region ...
The San Andreas Fault is a continental transform fault that extends roughly 1,200 kilometers (750 mi) through California. It forms the tectonic boundary between the Pacific Plate and the North American Plate, and its motion is right-lateral strike-slip (horizontal).
