A single blade on two different wind turbines at wind farms bounded by Verona, Redman, Huron City and Kinde Roads were hanging by a literal thread this morning after having apparently snapped in half. 

WLEW received numerous calls about the incidents. One of the turbines was located north of Redman Road near Verona Road. The other was north of Redman Road and east of Iseler Road. Cause was not immediately known. A Kinde resident told WLEW that some of the turbines in the area were just installed and cranes had left the area Friday but this could not immediately be confirmed.

This turbine is located east of Iseler Road and north of Redman Road
