The 43 ranges at Marine Corps Base Quantico will be busy through Feb. 5 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:

Jan 25 8 a.m. – midnight

Live Fire Demo 5lbs & below

Jan 26 12:01 a.m. - midnight

Live Fire Demo 5lbs & below w/ Claymore

Jan 27 6 a.m. - midnight

Live Fire Demo 10lbs & below w/ Claymore

Jan 28 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.

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