Jet and artillery training may make Camp Pendleton, California, loud next week

Harrier jets will be flying around I-5 at the base during the day Monday through Friday while artillery exercises go on into the night.

 AV-8B Harrier jets from Marine Aircraft Group 13 will be conducting exercises along I-5 at Camp Pendleton between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
 You might see or hear jets flying and hovering near the Las Pulgas Road freeway exit south of San Clemente. 

In addition, Camp Pendleton units will be conducting live-fire artillery training on the base's Whiskey and Zulu impact areas from 6 a.m. to midnight Monday through Friday.

On Thursday, extended firing will be conducted until 2 a.m. Regimental live-fire artillery exercises involve about 25 howitzer 155mm cannons. 

Depending on atmospheric conditions, the sound of the explosions may be heard up to 50 miles away.
