More loud "booms" were heard coming from Fort Hood on Thursday.

According to post spokesman Chris Haug, members of 2nd Battalion, 82nd Field Artillery, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division are currently training with 155 mm Howitzer artillery rounds, causing the noise coming from post.

Also accounting for the booms: M1A2 Abrams battle tanks from 3rd Brigade are conducting gunnery, according to a social media post from the brigade.

The training is expected to last until Feb. 15, post officials said. Additional units from 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team will also be training until Feb. 24.
