US Marines trainings are expected to produce loud explosion sounds at Quantico Marine Corps Base, Virginia. These sounds may be heard in a perimeter of 50 miles around the base certainly in the near Fauquier county and other spots in Virginia and close states. They have already begun yesterday without any notices. This resulted in residents worrying about loud booming noises rattling windows and houses late Tuesday morning (February 12 2013).

Below you will find the schedule for munitions training for the rest of the week at the base. Moreover during the whole month of february 2013 pile driving work outside the facility (95 Express Lanes Project) will be undertaken.
