There are apparently quite a few that run through NC, but I can't seem to find any information on exactly how many or where they are. The following sites give some information, wish I had more details for you...

Yes, there are fault lines in North Carolina although they are not very many and it is rare for earthquakes to occur from them. There is a report given by Chris Tacker, the Curator of North Carolina museum, that says that there are presences of fault lines from one end of the states to the other.
