Another power substation in NC was disabled Nov 11

in eastern NC. Power company was able to reroute power, so had power restored to customers in two hours. The power company isn't disclosing how the damage was done.

This happened on a remote stretch of Hwy 58 between Jacksonville and New Bern, near Maysville.

I suspect that this will spread. The FBI issued a warning a while back about this. n/t Marcus IM Dec 2022 #1

power companies don't maintain crews of security guards to defend power stations.
Hopefully they can at least ramp up other measures like cameras, alarms and working with local law enforcement to prevent these attacks.
I think it's a major problem that will have to be tackled by homeland security/fbi and so on.

... to Libs and social progressives - they will lash-out and disrupt the day to day tranquility to remind and warn how much they are capable of turning things upside down if they do not get their way.

You play by our rules or we turn the chessboard upside down - and force society into utter chaos and mayhem.

Sieg Heil,..

USA,.. USA,... USA.

I have contended all along that there will be no actual battles between armies. This is the war the fascists, AKA Repubs, want. The bud should have been nipped starting with the Bundy's but they were allowed to skate with little or no meaningful punishment, and they and their minions are still around.
