yikes. We had some winds in town 5 or 6 years between x-mas and New years. A section of scaffold about 20' high went down in the middle of the street(covered in tarps of course and not anchored to the building). The crew were from out of town and nobody knew how to get a hold of them. Sat in the street for 3 or 4 days until the town cleaned it up.
I have had staging come down inside a tent. the top 15 feet broke loose and fell back away from the chimney. high winds above a roof line with a big tarp made for a messy and very cold day. roof scaffold can suck in the winter for us when the winds are whipping you just wait for the staging to break loose.
