I watched a nine-story-high steel construction crane above a skyscraper in New York as the wind lifted it to vertical and then forced it to topple over and hinge downward until its tip crashed against the structure 80 stories above a Manhattan street.
The TV reporter said that Hurricane Sandy’s wind speed was over 100 mph at that height.
Today I used a leaf blower with a wind force rating of 130 mph to blow leaves from my decks and patio.
I noticed that the 130-mph wind often couldn’t move a leaf from a crack or a corner.
