Thousands Of Washington Residents Without Power After Substations Vandalized

Thousands of Washington residents are without power resulting from area substations vandalized and burglarized on Christmas Day.


Local police investigating after at least four electrical substations were vandalized Washington state on Christmas Day, knocking out power to thousands.

According to the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department, a call was received at 5:26 a.m. reporting a burglary at the Tacoma Public Utilities (TPU) substation.



Deputies arrived and noticed a forced entry into the fenced area. The PCSD said nothing appeared to have been taken from the substation, but the damage and vandilzation to the space caused the power failure.


This latest attack comes after a number of them occurred over a six month period. Back in January, the Department of Homeland Security warned that since 2020 domestic extremists have been developing “credible, specific plans” to attack electricity infrastructure.

It will be interesting who the extremists are the Department of Homeland Security is speaking of. No doubt they will somehow try to blame Trump supporters or white supremacists. No doubt this is the handiwork of eco-terrorist groups like EarthFirst! or Extinction Rebellion.
