The wind has picked up dramatically here. Everything is blowing around.

And now we've got some damages going on. We live in a construction site and there is stuff blowing down the road, but looking out the bay window, patio furniture has been blown over, umbrellas are down and the neighbours fence looks like it's going to topple shortly. Winds are 50kmh gusting to 70 kmh right now. Steadily picking up.
