FORT JACKSON (WACH/AP) â?? There may be some loud noises from the McCrady Training Center over the next two days, and the base is warning neighbors to be ready for them.
Guard spokesman Maj. Cindi King says National Guard troops are taking part in demolition training. The explosions are expected to be heard Thursday and Friday near the town of Eastover and possibly elsewhere in southeastern Richland County.
Maj. King says the forecast of overcast skies might enhance the noise. She goes on to say that the S.C. National Guard appreciates the community's understanding and continued support.
Should you have any concerns related to the noise, you are asked to contact the S.C. National Guard Public Affairs office at 803-299-4327.
