    Residents near Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst may hear “booms” and feel “rumbles” through Saturday.

    The Marine Wing Support Squadron 472 will be conducting demolition training at the Dix ranges today and Saturday, according to a military press release.

    Combat engineers will detonate explosives between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m.

    “During this time, Joint Base and community residents may experience ground shaking and considerable noise, especially during overcast weather,” the release said.

    “Joint Base MDL works hard to minimize the impact training may have on surrounding communities. We appreciate your patience as our Marines conduct this essential training, which ultimately helps to ensure the readiness of America’s fighting force.”
