Yes, it was literally that windy out yesterday.

Not only did yesterday's high winds knock out power to thousands of Mainers across the region, but according to WMTW News 8, a house that was under construction in South Portland actually blew down.

Officials responded to the area of D street in South Portland yesterday afternoon at about 3 o'clock. There isn't much information available but reports indicate the jobsite was vacant at the time, though the house did collapse onto nearby cars.
