Wind turbine causing headaches, nausea, Scituate family says | South – WCVB Home

Family asks court to stop operations of wind turbine

Janet Wu — WCVB.com — January 12, 2013

With three blades each 150 feet long, the turbine runs intermittently throughout the day and night.

“We can’t sleep, my children wake up in the middle of the night because of the noise and humming, and then they go to school where they can’t concentrate because they are sleep deprived,” said Mark McKeever.

He said his family is suffering from sleep disturbances, headaches, nausea, dizziness, extreme fatigue, anxiety, tinnitus and difficulty concentrating since the turbine was erected over their house last March.

On sunny afternoons, light flickers throughout their house and makes it impossible to stay in the house or even to do any yard work.

Mark McKeever said his family had two good weeks of sleep in recent months — when they went to New Hampshire for vacation.

“What they are doing is wrong,” said Mark McKeever, who has pleaded with the town’s board of health to at least shut the turbine down at night.

But town officials have been told by operators of the turbine that one-third of the wind generated is produced at night.

Town officials have said there is no proof that the turbine is causing the McKeevers’ health problems.

Mark McKeever said he has invited every official to come to his house and see for themselves, but none have shown up to date.
