Wind damages turbines near Minco

Ok-blade-failure1_thumb MINCO, Okla. — A wind turbine near Minco was damaged in overnight storms. Part of one of the blades was broken off and was left dangling in the breeze Friday morning. Some debris landed on part of land owned by Fox 25 Storm Tracker Bobby Hines, Hines said. The Oklahoma Mesonet site in Minco saw a gust of nearly 60 miles an hour during those thunderstorms. Other damage was reported around Oklahoma in the form of downed tree limbs.

Cogar Volunteer Fire Department warns of ice throw

Cogar-fd-icechunks-2_thumb Warning from the Cogar Volunteer Fire Department: Please beware of large chunks of ice being launched great distance by the wind turbines in our area! Please use extreme caution and stay a safe distance away from them. We have seen 3 wires of new barbed wire fences broken by ice chunks from the blades of these massive machines. The pictures of the ice chunks below were recovered about 125 yds from the base of a turbine about 4:30 pm this afternoon. Much larger and thicker pieces had impacted closer to the base.
