On February 12, 2017, an extremely loud message from the Sunny Point direction threatened to send drones with a countdown. What was this about?

Steven Kerr, deputy commander of the 596th Transportation Brigade and Military Ocean Terminal Sunny Point, said MOTSU would never broadcast a threatening message outside the facility, nor does it have the capability to. Kerr said the only thing passers-by could’ve heard was MOTSU’s internal warning system for personnel. The system is tested periodically and is used for situations where personnel might need to take cover or evacuate the facility.

“Our system only broadcasts internally,” Kerr said. “You might be able to hear it outside of MOTSU, but it’s designed specifically for internal.”

Kerr said MOTSU has police and security guards that protect the property from intruders.
