Camp Pendleton neighbors warned to expect noise

Communities surrounding Camp Pendleton may experience noise from training exercises this weekend involving the firing of high-explosive munitions, officials said.

Live-fire mine-clearing exercises are set for 6 a.m. to midnight Saturday and Sunday in the Whiskey impact area, which is 12 miles from Fallbrook and 14 miles from San Clemente. Depending on atmospheric conditions, explosions may be heard up to 50 miles away.

No kidding, Camp Pendleton is a neighbor and they are EXTREMELY noisy at times and one wonders how much of tax payer mone goes up in a big bang every time, some of the stuff is unbelievably loud and likely equally expensive, I'm not sue why they do it as it should not serve any real purpoese to do this as a routine.

TO CENTERLANE: Move to Berkley, CA or San Franfreako

Centerlane - so it is your contention that your delicate ears are more important than the lives of Marines who are training for war? Are you for real? Talk about no sense of perspective. Just turn your big screen tv up and ignore it, like you do with the rest of reality.
