The weekend sounded like a war zone in southern Johnson County.
All weekend the sounds of mortar shells exploding were rattling homes and businesses in and around Edinburgh. Hearing booms and feeling vibrations from exploding shells have been pretty common for residents in recent years, but not something that’s easy to get used to, Edinburgh resident David Grothkob said.
“It’s like living in a war zone all summer long. The war is 5 miles away and you’re hearing everything that’s going on,” he said.
