LAKEHURST, N.J. (AP) - New Jersey residents living near Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst might hear booming and feel the earth shaking.

The base said on its Facebook page that Marines from the 3rd Battalion and 6th Engineer Support Battalion will conduct live artillery and controlled demolition exercises from Thursday through Sunday.

The base says the training could produce “considerable” noise in the area and that it could travel further during overcast weather.
