Windows are vibrating and loud noises are heard out in the distance.
Earthquake, thunder or Fort Riley training?
This is a common question asked by Manhattan residents and Kansas State students.
Thunder or Fort Riley? #walkingtoclassthoughts

It may be because Fort Riley is currently in a Noise and Training Advisory as they complete demolition training, which is expected to create “significant noise” during all hours of the day.
Yo Fort Riley, you good? I'm tryna sleep

And when they say “all hours,” they mean it.
Come on Fort Riley it's 6:30 in the morning stop being loud. ??

On the bright side, students may not have to set their alarm clocks because Fort Riley has them covered.

The demolition training consists of “significant noise from tank, artillery and mortar certification fire, and explosions.” It may or may not look like this.

Or does it look like a party? Maybe similar to one in Aggieville?
Fort Riley has been having a week-long party

Either @alyxj_ is doing some major damage in aggieville right now or fort Riley is just bombing again.

If the noise bothers you, take relief in the fact that the advisory ends on Feb. 12.
I need Fort Riley to chill right now.

Ok, fort Riley can stop now

Until then, let the conspiracies continue.
Fort Riley just showed their approval of Lady Gaga halftime show by blowing up Ogden.

And feel safe knowing the loud noises from Fort Riley are because they are training for the defense of our country and the noises are not from an apocalypse.
freakin Fort Riley goin HAM, the fact that anyone, let alone an entire town sleeps through this apocalyptic soundtrack every night is insane
