Wind Storm

Had a wind storm at home last Sunday. Gusts up to 120kph. Bike was on flat ground; on the centre stand - got blown over!
I am in what is called a "Rural Fringe" and on just a couple of acres. Had 5 trees close to the hose blow over, root balls exposed, plus countless tree tops and large branches blown down. Roads were impassable for a few hours, power off for a few days.
No damage to the house, minor ding and scratches to the pannier.
