If you’re headed to central Florida, be aware that this week there are training exercises happening in a national park. A large area will be closed for safety purposes as bombs are dropped on Florida. We’d bet most people never think about that!
The U.S. Navy is dropping bombs in training missions into Ocala National Forest. They began Tuesday, 3/22 and plan to finish this round of training on Thursday 3/24. The Navy has the Pinecastle Range Complex west of State Road 19 and south of State Road 40. It is about a two and a half hour drive from Tampa.
Some have reported having heard the bombing runs in the past as far away as Orlando.
