Looks like the Navy with their Sonar Testing will be heading south to Florida!

Why does the navy keep picking on NC? first they tried to destroy 30,000 environmental land with OLF but they didnt win thankfully In an ongoing battle with the U.S. Navy and politicians in neighboring Virginia, a group of North Carolina farmers have been successful in defending 30,000 acres of prime farmland

Now this . I know the objective since the Navy has the port at Norfolk is why they keep seeking out NC being across the border but....urrgh

I read about the sonar in Welcome to N.C. Coastal Federation — nccoast.org and wasnt pleased but
Thank you for the ray of sunshine.

Not only the whales would be affected but I am sure the dolphin and shark population would as well there is already a decrease number of sharks in the earth waters and I would guess it to the number of submarines.

Thanks for posting this have a splendid day.

Just a quick reply to the SONAR debate. Medium to high frequency SONAR does little to impact the fish and marine mammal population. The navy does implement certain things to mitigate any possible damage to the populations.
The area off North Carolina resembles the bottom contour and water conditions of several areas of the world the navy feels the fleet needs to train for. The navy needs to practice to hone the skills of the sailors. Just as a sports team needs to practice for a big game. However, the stakes are much higher, like the freedom we enjoy each day.
