Wind turbines damaged in Ohio

At least one wind turbine is damaged in Van Wert County, Ohio. Officials say they don’t know the cause.

Could the wind be causing problems for wind turbines? Wind turbines are a big controversy around the Northeast Indiana and Western Ohio areas, and one of the biggest issues people have with them is the fear of things like ice flying off the blades, or worse, the blades falling off.

Indiana’s NewsCenter got a call to our news room Tuesday night about turbines with broken blades.

Our crews found the damaged turbine, and people inspecting it in Edgerton, Ohio. There were several large pieces of the blades on the ground in a field.

One official says only one of the 55 turbines in the county is damaged. They say two of the blades broke off, but they’re not sure what caused the damage or if any damage was caused by the blades.

INC is told that all 55 wind turbines have been turned off, and the damaged turbine has been blocked off. Maintenance crews are still looking into the issue. We’ll have more details as they become available.
