APG: Big Booms Possible Until Dec. 7

Large detonation testing on Aberdeen Proving Ground is planned for Nov. 27 to Dec. 7.

The U.S. Army Aberdeen Test Center at Aberdeen Proving Ground is planning to conduct large detonations between Tuesday and Dec. 7 and is warning neighboring communities of impending booms.

According to a statement from the U.S. Army Test and Evaluation Command, "detinations are likely to generate sound and/or vibration" outside APG gates.

In the event of unfavorable weather conditions, the testing may be rescheduled.

ATEC "provides test and test support services" for military and contract organizations, according to the statement.

I know how my house shakes in Baltimore County. Homeowners in Harford County closer to the action must really be feeling it! Who's going to take care of the cracks in foundations and drywall?

I live on APG! It isn't that bad where my house is. You get use to it after while.

I really doubt your drywall and foundations are cracking do to this. Your farts are more likely to be the cause.
