Cherry Point live-fire training in Pamlico Sound

CHERRY POINT, N.C. (WNCT)- U.S. Navy Special Boat Teams are conducting maneuvering and live-fire training in and around Cherry Point waterways starting Tuesday.

The training will be at bombing targets 9 and 11 in the Pamlico Sound and will continue through the end of the month.

Ground forces will conduct training at Outlying Landing Field Atlantic October 20th through 22nd. Down East residents can expect an increase in military vehicle traffic during this period.

Later in October, the prohibited area around Bombing Target 11 will temporarily expand to 2.5 statute miles. Officials say boaters should take extra care to stay clear of the expanded prohibited area during these intermittent expansions.
