If your hear the boom in Ocean County, it's likely it'll be coming from Joint Base McGuire Dix Lakehurst.

Officials will be conducting mortar training drills on the ranges starting tomorrow and going thru next Wednesday July 18.

Cloudy or overcast weather could make the noise even louder or send the noise levels farther at times.

"It may not be the 4th anymore, but we're still making some noise for our country!," JBMDL said on Facebook.

"We know that the sounds can be hard on four-legged family members. Check out our MDL Minute for some tips and tricks that could help them out this weekend!"

"We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to train America's fighting force!"

Any other booms you hear this weekend could be fireworks, all of which should only be legal.
