If you heard loud noises in Atascadero, Paso Robles and other areas of North County on Tuesday evening, there’s no need to fret, San Luis Obispo County officials say.
The base told the Sheriff’s Office that it was doing explosive ordnance disposal work, Nix said.
“They were probably getting rid of an ordnance or may have just been doing range training,” he said. “It’s not uncommon for there to be explosions on that base.”
North County residents on Facebook reported hearing the booms Tuesday. One video showed a home’s windows shaking.
