Wind turbine collapses in Cape Breton

Nova Scotia Power is investigating after one of its wind turbines collapsed.

The utility says no one was on site when the wind turbine it owns and operates in Grand Etang snapped Tuesday night.

A severe wind warning was in effect that night, but it's unclear at this point if that caused the collapse.

The turbine was built in 2002 and was one of the first wind installations in the province.
