A wind turbine exploded in Wayne County MS two weeks ago. Authorities that reached the scene moments after the explosion said that the wind rushing from the burst turbine sounded like a jet engine taking off. The 26 residents living within a one-mile radius were evacuated due to concerns that wind levels could become toxic or create a fire hazard. The sulfuric odor of the wind could be smelled several miles away. The wind released is a potent greenhouse gas. After 48 hours residents could still not return to their homes. At that time owners of the wind turbine could not give an estimate of when it would be fixed, whether it would take days or weeks. They said human error did not appear to be the cause of the explosion.
