quantico blasting training noise

The 43 ranges at Quantico Marine Corps base will be busy through Oct. 23 with training for everything from small arms to explosive demolitions to artillery fire to the delivery of live aerial munitions.

The impact of noise, vibrations, and/or illuminations experienced across the area can vary greatly depending on the residential location, atmospheric conditions and reductions to naturally occurring sound barriers.

Quantico says very loud noise and noticeable ground vibrations may occur due to the following training:

Oct. 19, 6 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

LIVE FIRE DEMO COMBAT FEX W/BANGALORE & CLAYMORE

Oct. 20, 6 p.m. – 11 p.m.

Oct. 21, 8 a.m. – midnight

LIVE FIRE .50 CAL & BELOW, MORTARS; AV AIRCRAFT MOVEMENT

Oct. 22, 12:01 a.m. – midnight

LIVE FIRE .50 CAL & BELOW, 81MM MORTARS

Oct. 23, 12:01 a.m. – noon

Oct. 29, 7 a.m – 5 p.m.

LIVE FIRE DEMO 15LBS & BELOW

Oct. 30, 8 a.m – 5 p.m.

LIVE FIRE DEMO 10LBS & BELOW

Because training aboard Quantico is continuous, residents can expect to always hear some noise or feel vibrations.
