CAMP PENDLETON (CNS) - Loud booms were likely to be heard around Camp Pendleton today as airborne Marines conduct live-fire training and drop high explosives near the center of base.
The live-fire training will be done in the ``Whiskey'' impact area from 2 p.m. until 5 p.m., according to Camp Pendleton's public affairs office. The office also said other aircraft will be dropping high explosives in the Zulu impact area from 10 a.m. until noon.
``Depending on atmospheric conditions, the sound of explosions may be amplified and heard up to 50 miles away,'' according to a base statement.
