For a second time in two months, a wind turbine blade broke off in central Iowa.

The latest incident happened Thursday near Paton, in Greene County.

MidAmerican said, in both cases, the blade was equipped with a specific type of lightning protection system.

Last month, another blade dropped from a wind turbine in Adair County.

MidAmerican said these incidents are “extremely rare” and said even one incident is not acceptable.
