How Army Commands are Responding to ‘Targeted’ N.C. Power Outage | Army Times

Must Read

In a North Carolina County, which contains a region where citizens assigned to one of the army’s biggest and busiest bases reside, thousands of people braced for days without electricity. Authorities claim that one or more people with apparent criminal intent shot up two power substations. 

 North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper stated on Twitter that “an attack like this on essential infrastructure is a serious, purposeful crime and I expect state and federal authorities to thoroughly investigate and bring those responsible to justice.” The county’s traffic lights were not working. Traffic clogged up in places like downtown Carthage because some drivers regarded junctions.  At each broken traffic light, people communicated to one another when to proceed, creating a constant drone of honking. Maj. Russell Gordon, a spokesman for the 1st Special Forces Command, stated that officials “have reached out to people…to keep connected and aware while ensuring they’re [taken] care of,” and that numerous troops and families, including his, were stepping up and offering mutual aid.
