MINCO, Okla. —
A wind turbine near Minco was damaged in overnight storms.
Part of one of the blades was broken off and was left dangling in the breeze Friday morning.
Some debris landed on part of land owned by Fox 25 Storm Tracker Bobby Hines, Hines said.
The Oklahoma Mesonet site in Minco saw a gust of nearly 60 miles an hour during those thunderstorms.
Other damage was reported around Oklahoma in the form of downed tree limbs.
