LOS ANGELES (Tribune News Service) — Two months after twin earthquakes rocked the small California towns of Ridgecrest and Trona, details are emerging about the damage done to the nearby China Lake Naval Air Weapons Station, the Navy’s largest base for developing and testing weapons of warfare.

The base was so badly damaged that officials are suggesting several buildings be demolished and replaced. The cost of returning the facilities to normal could top $5 billion, according to Navy documents. https://www.stripes.com/news/us/earthquakes-caused-up-to-5-billion-in-damage-to-china-lake-naval-base-1.594343
