After fresh attention was brought to an April 2013 sniper attack on a power plant in central California, bloggers are highlighting a second possible attack that occurred less than a week later at a nuclear facility in Tennessee.
Although it received little news coverage at the time, last year’s assault on the Pacific Gas & Electric’s Metcalf transmission substation, during which telephone cables were cut and 100 shots were fired into the facility, has sparked fresh concerns about the safety of “soft targets” in the United States.
Described as a “military-style raid” by the L.A. Times, the FBI is still investigating the attack which knocked out 17 transformers, but has dismissed suggestions that it could have been carried out by terrorists despite no motive, fingerprints or suspects having been identified.
The attack was so serious that the entire plant had to be closed down for a month.
