If you’re hearing booms in the distance, the sounds may be from a Fort Hood artillery unit conducting live-fire training today.

The 1st Battalion, 82nd Field Artillery Regiment, which is part of 1st Cavalry Division’s 1st Armored Brigade Combat Team, has been in the field training for the past week, and was firing training rounds around lunchtime today, according to the unit’s Facebook page.

The training session is the unit’s first field exercise of 2020, according to the unit.
