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

    Marines from the 14th Regiment are conducting live fire artillery training at the installation, concluding at 4 p.m. tomorrow, according to a military press release.

    The training will occur in spots along and near Route 70.

    Area residents may experience ground shaking and considerable noise emanating from the base’s ranges.

    The base thanks area residents for their cooperation and patience, as the training is essential for the country’s fighting force, according to the release.

    The 42,000-acre installation spans more than 20 miles through portions of Burlington and Ocean counties.
