I went to the back of the shop with some trepidation but there was the yurt, still standing, albeit with the roof cover partly blown off. This was no big deal since I had not sewn the final seam and the cover had a tendency to get blown off even in a light wind.
A few of the roof poles had also lost their moorings and fallen to the ground. I suspect what happened that made the poles fall down was that the flexing of the wall in the wind distorted the round shape of the walls into an oval, popping off the tension band and allowing the top of the wall to bow out to where the roof poles were able to pull loose.
|The tension band, the green rope, is inside the wall instead of outside, apparently just rolled over the top of the wall.|
Oh, and I untangled the flag and got it back to the top of the pole.
