Moore County, North Carolina, has declared a state of emergency as power outages continue after a “deliberate” attack over the weekend in which gunfire damaged two substations. The attack left roughly 45,000 people without power in North Carolina.

Under the state of emergency, a curfew is in place from 9:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. each night, and residents of the county are encouraged to conserve fuel.

Jeff Brooks, a spokesman for Duke Energy, said Monday that the company had restored power to about 7,000 customers. About 38,000 remain without power, and Brooks said that it’s likely full restoration won’t happen until Wednesday or Thursday. In a press release shared earlier in the day, Duke Energy general manager Jason Hollifield said “the damage is beyond repair in some areas.”


This area is significant regarding how close it is to Fort Bragg,

Fort Bragg is a military installation of the United States Army in North Carolina and is one of the largest military installations in the world by population, with around 54,000 military personnel.[2]

The military reservation is located within Cumberland and Hoke counties,[3] and borders the towns of Fayetteville, Spring Lake, and Southern Pines.[citation needed] It was also a census-designated place in the 2000 census, during which a residential population of 29,183 was identified.[4]

It is named for native North Carolinian Confederate General Braxton Bragg, who had previously served in the United States Army in the Mexican-American War. Fort Bragg is one of ten United States Army installations named for officers who led military units of the Confederate States of America in the American Civil War.[5]

The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021,[6] passed over an attempted veto by President Trump,[7] includes a provision that all 10 Army bases named after prominent Confederate military leaders be renamed.[8] The Naming Commission has proposed renaming the installation “Fort Liberty.”[9]

Fort Bragg covers over 251 square miles (650 km2). It is the home of the Army’s XVIII Airborne Corps and is the headquarters[10] of the United States Army Special Operations Command, which oversees the U.S. Army 1st Special Forces Command (Airborne) and 75th Ranger Regiment. It is also home to the U.S. Army Forces Command, U.S. Army Reserve Command, and Womack Army Medical Center. Fort Bragg maintains two airfields: Pope Field, where the United States Air Force stations global airlift and special operations assets as well as the Air Force Combat Control School, and Simmons Army Airfield, where Army aviation units support the needs of airborne and special operations forces on post.
