Lightning apparently damages windmill blade 

Credit:  By Jeff Cole | WWNY | September 4, 2019 | www.wwnytv.com ~~

The north country woke up to thunderstorms Wednesday morning and apparently the lightning damaged a windmill blade in Lewis County.

A picture of the damage was taken by the folks at Moser’s Mapleridge Farm on Wilson Road in the town of Denmark.

They told 7 News they believe the lightning made a hit on the windmill and weakened it. It was a little later, as the turbine was spinning, that the top piece fell off.
