ABINGDON, Va. (TND) — Unfortunately, Mother Nature never ceases to impress.

That was certainly the case in Virginia on Saturday, and a camera inside a home caught what high wind can do.

Watch as a powerful wind gust ripped the roof off a sunroom.

One woman living there described the aftermath.

”Our roof is on our house, and not actually where it’s supposed to be on our house,” she said.

At least she had a sense of humor.

”Our sunroom is really a sunroom,” she explained.

WCYB Meteorologist David Boyd reported gusts in the area at the time were about 50 mph.

That’s tropical storm strength.

Hurricane strength is much more powerful — 50% stronger — starting at 74 mph.
