Air X wind generator

With Irene approaching is it sufficient to turn off the generator or do I need to tie down the blades? Not easy to access, it's on top of the mizzen.

What in the world does that mean? No need to tie down?

I think he's commenting on your username.
As for tying the blades down, I'm no expert by any stretch of the imagination, but I'd say to leave them free. They will definitely create a lot more wind resistance immobile. Obviously, the perfect choice is to shimmy up the mizzen and remove it, for absolute safety. How close to the storm's track are you?
