OCEANSIDE, Calif. - Loud booms were expected to be heard coming from Camp Pendleton Tuesday and Wednesday as Marines use explosives to practice clearing minefields under combat conditions.
The mine-clearing exercises will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. both days, according to Pendleton's public affairs office.
Depending on atmospheric conditions, the sounds of explosions may be amplified and heard up to 50 miles away.
Anyone with questions about the noise level can call base officials at (760) 725-0357.
