I also suspect that the speed of wind turbines is not just directly proportional to wind speed. As far as I know, the speed is generally regulated either by increasing the turbine load or by changing the blade pitch, to avoid them getting damaged in high wind. In extreme  gusty gales they are probably stopped with the blades feathered. It would be nice to see one or two turbines randomly stopped for maintenance in a wind farm.
