Wind forces are generated from natural events like thunderstorms, hurricanes and tornadoes. These winds create forces that attack the integrity of a structure in multiple ways: vertically, resulting in uplift forces, and horizontally, resulting in overturning, sliding and racking forces. Without proper design and construction, these forces can produce structural damage and even destruction. Modern design and construction practices, such as structural connectors used in a continuous load path transfer system, can effectively resist these forces by reinforcing the structure from the roof to the foundation.
