ADAIR (KWWL) -

Authorities in western Iowa are investigating how a wind turbine blade the size of a football field snapped off of the structure.

A technician for the Eclipse Wind Farm in Adair discovered the blade Friday morning.

The turbine manufacturer, Siemens Energy, is also investigating the matter. An official from the energy company says she has never heard of this sort of incident happening in Iowa before now.

Most of the blade that fell has been removed from the field.

There are no reports of injuries.
