South Coast Military Base On Alert, But It's A Drill

A South Coast military base is on alert, but it’s a big drill.

Naval Base Ventura County is holding a two day readiness exercise.

As a result of the drill, access to the base is limited at times. Some areas around the base are closed to traffic, and there are increased security measures for entrance to the base. There are also some tests messages being broadcast on loudspeakers which may be audible to people who live near the military facility.

The two day drill is set to wrap up at 1 p.m. Thursday.
