Moody Air Force Base announces loud explosions

VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Military personnel will be making lots of noise Tuesday, on the Grand Bay Bombing and Gunnery Range.

The 23rd Civil Engineer Squadron's Explosive Ordnance Disposal flight will conduct several controlled detonations, between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m.

The detonations will reduce the number of unexploded munitions, and will result in a significant reverberation that may rattle windows, and be heard throughout Valdosta and surrounding communities.

Public Affairs officers can answer questions at 229-257-4146 during normal duty hours (7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.) The Command Post can field questions at 229-257-3501 outside normal duty hours.
