JOINT BASE ELMENDORF-RICHARDSON, Alaska (AP) - It might get noisy for some Anchorage suburban residents this month.

U.S. Army Alaska officials say in a release that soldiers at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson will be training with explosives near Chugiak, starting Monday.

Soldiers from the 716th Explosive Ordnance Disposal Co. will continue training on week days until Oct. 24. Officials say eight explosive charges will be set off each day.

How widespread the noise will be depends on the cloud cover. It’s most likely to be heard in Chugiak, Eagle River and along Knik Arm across from the Demo III range.

Soldiers from the unit primary handle potentially explosive devices found within the state.
