Citizens Ask Island County commissioners to halt “irreparable injury” from jets  – Islands Weekly

The mounting evidence of harm from the Navy base is going to be what eventually turns the tide on this issue. The day has long past that it is appropriate to have this base, this close to such a huge population base. As I have pointed out here in the past, these jets have woke me up at after midnight, and I am farther away from the base than Edmunds is from Seatac. Or to think of it another way, would we ever consider it appropriate to allow this base here if it already wasn’t?

Island County Commissioners faced a room full of concerned and sometimes tearful Whidbey Island residents requesting specific actions be taken in response to documented proofs of on-going health harms. Proof of noise inflicted injuries were presented to the commissioners at their May 12 meeting in the form of declarations from medical experts, a local practicing physician, an acoustical expert, and victims suffering health problems attributed to the hazardous noise from low-flying Navy ‘Growler’ jets.  (Islands Weekly)
