Nashville bombing is a potent reminder that communications systems remain at risk from attack

The Christmas day bombing in Nashville damaged 911 service, internet access, and flights throughout the area, sparking concerns about how easily communications can be damaged by natural disaster or terrorism, reports Shane Harris for the Washington Post.

It’s unclear whether or not the Nashville bomber was targeting communications or not.

Department of Homeland Security officials have been trying to secure 911 systems and other vital communications since the 9/11 terrorist attacks, but the Christmas day bombing has demonstrated that there is still work to do in this critical area.
