On Sunday, residents of South Jersey were awakened by loud noises, leaving many neighbors wondering what could have caused the morning noise.
Rest assured, there is an answer.
The blows come from a training operation at the McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst Joint Base in Burlington County. This was reported by the Gibbsbar Police Department on Facebook.
Reports are coming to NBC10 from Burlington and Camden counties around 6:30 p.m.
Some residents said they felt their homes tremble.
Earlier this month, the joint base released its “May noise calendar“, Which celebrates Sunday, May 15, as a day of” high noise “.
The JBMDL said the high noise level was caused by heavy crew training on weapons and ammunition, which could include mortar ammunition, howitzer fire and crater charges.
Police said the noise could be some time because the training will continue for a month.
