It was a scary moment in Ocean Gate Friday morning around 11:00 am when a blade from a windmill came flying down from the sky and onto a residents front lawn on East Arverne Avenue.

The turbine blade hit a service line and then fell onto the front lawn, Ocean Gate resident Kate Ranuro tells WOBM News.

Ocean Gate Police Chief Mike Kuchta tells WOBM News that there are no injuries and that the turbines have been manually shut off.

Chief Kuchta said the turbine company is being called out to investigate what happened.

Ocean Gate Mayor Paul Kennedy tells WOBM News that the company is from Colorado and the three man crew will be on site first thing Sunday morning.

The turbines provide secondary power are more for the water treatment plant, fire house and the municipal building.

They are off and safe and the power is fine.

Kennedy said the turbines had their normal preventative maintenance in April of this year.
