A $25,000 reward is now being offered for information about the attack on power substations in North Carolina.

Investigators say that someone shot the substations with a high-powered rifle, knocking out power for thousands of people.

Nearly two dozen shell casings were found at the scene.

Police have not released a motive, but said they are looking at online forums encouraging attacks on critical infrastructure.

Power is now fully restored to the area.
