MARION COUNTY, Fla. – The Navy is set to conduct bombing training starting on Friday in the Ocala National Forest, according to the U.S. Forest Service.
The training at the Pinecastle Range Complex is set to take place from June 18 to 20, according to an online post.
The training will include live and inert bombs. People are being asked to avoid the area around the complex.
The Forest Service warns that wildlife may be temporarily displaced due to the noise.
“If you live in or near the forest, please secure any items around your residence that could attract wildlife,” the Facebook post read.
It also advises that people will likely see an increase in military aircraft flying in the area.
The city of DeLand also warned residents of possible shaking and noise.
“The U.S. Navy is doing live and inert bomb training at the Pinecastle Range Complex today and through the weekend,” a post read from the city. “Other than feeling the ground shake a bit over the next few days and you may see displaced wildlife due to the noise, so please be careful if you’re headed in the direction toward Ocala or on State Road 44.”
