I'm not sure I understand whether ALL of these poles were literally *blown* down by the microburst wind force, or whether officials believe only a FEW poles were blown down, but then started a chain-reaction which PULLED-DOWN the majority of the poles due to the weight of the lines??

Could the author "investigate" that theory and add those answers to this online article?

Thx.

A 45 mph wind did this damage?!?! That does not compute.

Is this a typo that should read 145 mph??
