Power Restored To North Carolina County
Utility crews discovered two substations reportedly displayed damage by gunfire.
Power has been restored in thousands of homes, businesses and along the streets in a North Carolina county.
After multiple reports of black outs around Moore County came in, utility crews discovered signs of potential vandalism of equipment at different sites including two substations that reportedly displayed damage by gunfire.
As of Wednesday, power has officially been restored in infrastructure after the outage lasted for days.
The Moore County Sheriff, Ronnie Fields, said the substations were “targeted” and the attacks were “intentional.”
Governor, Roy Cooper, condemned the sabotage of the electrical substations as a “criminal attack”. He also explained the incident represented a new kind of threat for officials to deal with.
No suspects or a motive have been announced as an investigation is still underway.
