If you live near Naval Weapons Station Earle, don’t be alarmed by loud booms coming from the installation this week.
Demolition training by NWS Earle’s Explosive Ordnance Disposal team is ongoing through Friday, according to a military release.
The Explosive Ordnance Disposal team at NWS Earle periodically coordinates this and other types of explosive demolition training.
“The training may cause ground shaking and considerable noise coming from the installation. This noise may be louder and travel farther during overcast weather,” the release said.
While the detonations are slated for the afternoon hours, they may occur during the morning depending on weather conditions.
JSHN contributors inquired about the activity yesterday, with Rachel Relyea Carbone reporting “loud, building shaking booms.”
NWS Earle is a US Navy base in portions of Colts Neck, Howell, Wall, Tinton Falls, and Middletown.
