VERMILION COUNTY – A blade from a wind turbine got tangled up in itself on Wednesday morning. It’s in Vermilion County near Potomac. That’s just off Route 49.
It’s one of 134 turbines owned by Invenergy. The company said they shut down all the turbines until they can get it fixed and they are trying to find out how it happened. Neighbors said they’re concerned about safety around the wind farms. No one was hurt.
