And a nasty storm it was.

We had a lot of damage around here in New Jersey.

It seems like every day there's another incident of flying metal associated with the weak wind industry:

MARSTONS MILLS - Around 12 p.m. Sunday, two blades of a wind turbine were reportedly blown off during the strong noreaster ravaging Cape Cod.

According to spectators near the scene, two blades atop the approximately 60 foot wind turbine blew off around noon. There were no reported injuries.

A section of the blades could be seen on the ground approximately 100 feet from the wind turbine.

The wind turbine is located near 3800 Falmouth Road in Marstons Mills, a village in Barnstable, Massachusetts.
