A well-coordinated attack, similar to Metcalf, has the potential to cause widespread disruption of electrical services. Coordinated attacks on multiple locations would likely result in cascading failures with the potential to disable an entire region for weeks if not months. Recently NERC, the North American Electric Reliability Corporation, has been mandated to develop standards to address physical security threats, including gunfire and explosive attacks.
