Wind turbine blown down

Hermigua turbine
OPC chart for Thursday

The strong winds of yesterday which gusted to nearly 100 km/h in the mountains of La Gomera blew down the relatively new wind turbine which feeds into the charging station for electric cars in the northern town of Hermigua. 
Today the weather is much better and it will remain mostly sunny for the next few days. However, unsettled weather is forecast to return to the Canary Islands in the second half of the week when a new low pressure system is expected to form north of the islands which could bring more wind and rain.
