Navy Issues Noise Alert for Naval Base San Diego

Navy personnel will be training on how to respond to a terrorist attack at Naval Base San Diego this week and that could mean some unusual noises in the area, officials warned Tuesday.

The training dubbed Citadel Protect will involve the firing of blanks between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. through Thursday, November 17.

Citadel Protect tests and assesses the Navy's capability to protect ships from various potential threats in ports at home and overseas, military officials said in a written statement.

Residents should expect to hear blank gunfire during the exercise.
