Damaging winds are termed “straight-line” winds to distinguish their damage from that of a tornado. Strong thunderstorm winds that cause damage at the ground are a result of outflow generated by a thunderstorm downdraft. Damaging winds are classified as those exceeding 50-60 mph. Numerous cases find the amount of damages caused by winds at issue.
