Wind turbine blade breaks, crashes
Orangeville, N.Y. - A Wyoming County wind farm is closed while police investigate how a blade broke off one of the turbines.
The owners of the Orangeville wind farm said a blade crashed to the ground Sunday morning during testing.
No one was hurt, but people say they heard 160 foot blade crack apart and slam into the ground.
It sounded like a cannon going off, said Gary Paone. A loud cannon. I mean, I could hear it a half-a-mile away. It was loud, very loud.
That particular turbine was one of 58 installed last month.
