I get that if the wind really wants to take you, she's gonna take you. But are these winds really so unusually strong or are the safety standards/building codes, whatever it is, just not up to snuff?

Either it's happening more frequently or I'm just noticing it more.
Probably just hearing more about it. News (if that is what you want to call it) tends to sensationalize one topic for a year then move on to the next news trend.
