Naval Support Activity conducting training exercise for next couple weeks

PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - Don't be surprised if you hear loud noises the next couple weeks since Naval Support Activity and local law enforcement agencies will be conducting a training exercise.

From January 29 through February 9, all Navy bases in the Continental United States will take part in an anti-terrorism force protection exercise.

According to a press release from the Navy, the annual exercise helps strengthen its security forces, but it is not in response to any threat.

In addition to some loud noises, there may be occasional heavier traffic near the base or delays to access the base.
