quantico blasting training noise

Quantico Marine Corps base says very loud noise and noticeable ground vibrations may occur over the next couple of weeks due to training, including tonight.

The following training is scheduled:

Nov. 9, 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.

AV AIRCRAFT MOVEMENT, LIVE FIRE DEMO 50LBS & BELOW

Nov. 13, 7 a.m. - midnight

LIVE FIRE 25MM & BELOW

Nov. 14, 7 a.m. - midnight

LIVE FIRE 25MM & BELOW

The base operates 43 live-fire ranges that support training from small arms to explosive demolitions to artillery fire to the delivery of live-aerial munitions. As a regional facility, MCBQ is a critical asset for weapons proficiency training for Marines, the Department of Defense, federal agencies, and law enforcement organizations.

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.

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