This isn't the first time something like this has happened during construction. It's a setback, but I'm sure RMC and their engineers did their homework so the final structure wouldn't do this.
Not sure on Troy, perhaps it's more common than I think with wooden construction.
No doubt that the design is likely sound, but it is just wild that all three of those sections came down. For sure a chain reaction due to the unsupported top members... I'm sure in those gusts, created a pretty huge moment on whatever was supporting the "vertical cantilever" in the winds, causing failure at the point and creating the chain reaction on the rest of the structure.
Sucks, regardless! That can't be any fun at all to figure out how to repair/rebuild, as things are typically build in a precise order for a reason.
