CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - Last week when Chicago was dealing with that intense wind storm, an entire wall of a building was blown down which crushed and completely destroyed a parked SUV.

The red Jeep Grand Cherokee was owned by a woman who works at Ri-Del Manufacturing, according to DNAinfo Chicago. The woman has since met with the man who identifies himself as the building owner. The incident occurred at Walnut and Wood streets on February 19.
Wind gusts of up to 69 miles per hour were recorded last Friday, and yes, they wreaked havoc on the city. Even Divvy bikes were dancing in their racks (see video below).
