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.

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.

And when they say “all hours,” they mean it.

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?

If the noise bothers you, take relief in the fact that the advisory ends on Feb. 12.

Until then, let the conspiracies continue.

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.

Sleep well.

Hi, I'm Kaitlyn Alanis, former news editor for the Collegian and a May 2017 graduate in agricultural communications and journalism. I have never tried a hamburger and I hate the taste of coffee, but I love writing stories and sharing what I learn with our readers. By writing for the Collegian, I can now not only sing along when the K-State Band plays "The Band is Hot," but I also know that most agriculture students did not grow up on a farm, how to use an AED to save someone's life and why there is a bust of MLK Jr. outside of Ahearn Field House. Thanks for reading!
