Power grid stations in Pacific Northwest fall victim to recent attacks


Washington law enforcement sources say they received a memo from the FBI warning them about attacks to power stations in the Pacific Northwest. The memo read: “Power companies in Oregon and Washington have reported physical attacks on substations, using hand tools, arson, firearms and metal chains possibly in response to an online call for attacks on critical infrastructure. In recent attacks, criminal actors bypassed security by cutting the fence links, lighting nearby fires, shooting equipment from a distance or throwing objects over the fence and onto equipment.”
