Wind Turbine Collapses in Haskell County

KSCB News - December 16, 2014 4:09 pm

It was quite a sight in Haskell County Monday after a wind turbine collapsed.

Investigators were called in to determine what happened. The company says it’s too early to tell if it was caused by strong winds.

No one was hurt in the incident.

The turbine that collapsed is part of a wind farm between Satanta and Garden City. That farm was set up in 2014 and has 135 wind turbines.

The company says it is very unusual for something like this to happen, but it did not affect anyone’s electric service.
