According to spectators near the scene, two blades atop the approximately 60 foot wind turbine blew off around noon. A section of the blades could be seen on the ground approximately 100 feet from the wind turbine. Editor's note: According to news reports, the Aircon-10 turbine was erected in May 2009. It has a capacity of 10 kilowatts and stands 100-feet tall from base to blade tip.
