Turbines destroyed in France
French news reported that the braking system on two turbines failed, causing the machines to overspin and catch fire. One of towers exploded, sending burning debris into the vegetation igniting fire on the ground. "Thank God it had rained two days before," said a woman to the journalist, but had this occurred in August, it would have been a different matter.
