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.
