No, at least not one that has been documented and/or active.
Both Warren Lee, the New Hanover County Emergency Management Director, and John Huntsman, an associate professor at the University of North Carolina Wilmington, say the threat of an earthquake impacting the Wilmington area is slim because while the city is “relatively close to one,” no fault line runs directly through Wilmington. The closest one is in the mountains. There are minor faults running across the state, but none are active.
