It should come as no surprise that all the major coastal cities are sitting on top of active earthquake zones. The Central Valley cities like Fresno, Stockton and Sacramento are not.

Not necessarily true. Because of the several thousand feet of sediment, detritus washed down from the Sierra the westward edge of the Sierra batholith is deeply buried and could contain any number of faults, generally we don't know about buried faults until they shake.
