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.
