SCHOFIELD BARRACKS (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Field artillery training exercises by the 25th Infantry Division at Schofield Barracks appear to be behind numerous reports of loud booming noises that were reported across Oahu on Wednesday night, according to a spokesperson from the U.S. Army Garrison-Hawaii.

Army officials issued a noise advisory for Schofield Barracks on Thursday, saying that residents "in the immediate vicinity" of the base may experience periodic increases in noise during daylight hours between January 31 and February 20, 2013.

After an inquiry by Hawaii News Now, it was determined that the training exercises were also responsible for noises that were heard for hours prior to midnight on Thursday.

Residents from as far away as Diamond Head and Kailua reported hearing the noises, according to posts on the Hawaii News Now Facebook page. 

"The Army in Hawaii appreciates your understanding and continued support of our Soldiers and family members," reads a statement from U.S. Army Garrison-Hawaii. "While sometimes loud, the sounds of training represent how the Army ensures our nation's Soldiers are ready to accomplish the mission and return home safely."

Anyone with further concerns related to noise or training can call the U.S. Army Garrison-Hawaii Noise Concern Line at 656-3487.
