Some residents in San Clemente and nearby South Orange County cities are wondering why continuous loud booms are being heard coming from Camp Pendleton.
The booms are likely the results of explosive ordinance disposal engineers creating a safe path for Marines on the ranges, officials from the 1st Marine Expeditionary Force said on Wednesday, Nov. 25.
