The California city of Ridgecrest was rocked by a series of earthquakeslast week that caused damage to buildings and residences. 

The epicenter of the quakes was located near the Naval Air Weapons Station China Lake, a large military testing site that was shut down amid reports that some of its structures were damaged.

The site's groundwater was recently found to contain elevated levels of "forever chemicals" called per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, or PFAS.
