Were wind forces the only cause of the CPCE roof being blown off?

Dear Editor, As reported in SN of Feb 9, a site inspection team from the Ministry of Education concluded without checking other possible contributory causes that high wind loads on the morning of Feb 6 created pressures or suction on the sloping windward roof of the library building of the Cyril Potter College of Education (CPCE) causing about 75 % of its zinc sheets to be blown off.
