U.S. Marines from Long Island will be making some noise in New Jersey through Sunday.

Units are scheduled for range training at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, which spans several municipalities in Burlington and Ocean counties.

The military is warning local residents that they may hear more noise than usual coming from the base and may feel the ground shaking. The noise could be worse on overcast days, according to the military.

The Marines -- who are from the 3rd Battalion, 14th Marine Regiment; the Marine Wing Support Squadron 472; and the 2nd Battalion 25th Marine Regiment from Garden City, N.Y. -- will conduct firing training at the Dix ranges between March 8 and March 10, from 7 a.m. and 11 p.m. each day.

"This training is essential and helps to ensure the readiness of America's fighting force," the military said in a press release.

Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst was formed by the 2009 consolidation of McGuire Air Force Base, the Army's Fort Dix, and Naval Air Station Lakehurst.
