Eatontown: The Eatontown Borough website is alerting residents that the U.S. Military is continuing training exercises this evening on the Fort Monmouth property.   This is the message as it appears on http://eatontownnj.com:

Fort Monmouth properties.  Activity is expected to end around midnight but the possibility exists that it may go later.  Borough officials have no control over this operation or the noise that it may produce.  Please do not call the Police Department or other Borough Offices to report it.

The Tinton Falls website has a similar post, however it indicates that the NJ State Police are training on the Fort property this evening.


Tinton Falls Residents please be aware

end on Thursday 06-07-12.

Reports on the Facebook group, Jersey Shore Hurricane News, which is dedicated to weather, traffic and breaking news events in New Jersey is reporting military training in the Lakehurst and Fort Dix areas.

WORDontheShore captured the US Navy blimp traveling from the Long Branch area traveling south to Lakewood this afternoon.   It continued heading south in the direction of Lakehurst Naval Air Station/Fort Dix.   It's not clear if the blimp was involved in the training that began Monday night in Long Branch.
