Army warns of training noise near Oahu base

SCHOFIELD BARRACKS, Hawaii (AP) - The Army says that because of training, those living near a central Oahu base may experience an increase in noise.

Residents near Schofield Barracks may hear the noise Tuesday during scheduled 25th Infantry Division field artillery training exercises.

The effects of training vary depending on weather conditions. Overcast conditions may increase noise and vibrations. Smoke may be visible.

U.S. Army Garrison Hawaii says it appreciates the community's understanding that training for soldiers can mean loud sounds.

The exercises are expected to last from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m.
