According to the FBI, terrorists have targeted at least five power stations in the Pacific Northwest. The news comes shortly after a station in North Carolina was hit by terrorists, taking out power near Fort Bragg. The Daily Mail’s Sophie Mann reports:
At least five attacks at electricity substations in the Pacific Northwest have been reported to the FBI in recent weeks.
The incidents came to light via a federal memo following a deliberate attack last week in Moore County, North Carolina, that left tens of thousands of people without power for days as seasonal temperatures fall.
In Washington state and Oregon, spokespeople for several energy companies – Puget Sound Energy, the Cowlitz County Public Utilities District and Bonneville Power Administration – confirmed the attacks occurred in November.
A federal law enforcement memo revealed that the Pacific Northwest substations have described attacks using ‘handtools, arson, firearms, and metal chains possibly in response to an online call for attacks on critical infrastructure.’
‘In recent attacks, criminal actors bypassed security fences by cutting the fence links, lighting nearby fires, shooting equipment from a distance or throwing objects over the fence and on to equipment,’ read the memo.
Action Line: The last thing you want for your family is a prolonged power outage. Prepare yourself with backup power and heat where possible. Develop a plan for evacuating your family if necessary.
