Wind turbine coming apart in Bremer County

WAVERLY (KWWL) - Wind is causing major problems in Waverly.

Waverly Light and Power noticed a problem Friday in the rotor and blades of a recently constructed wind turbine.

It's basically spinning out of control.

Normally, the blades will not catch the wind before the turbines are operational and control the blade speed.

The structure could come apart and fall down.

Nearby homeowners have temporarily been moved away from the area.

The roads near the construction area have been barricaded to keep people out.
