Wasps in the wind

On Monday, we were spared -- the closest tornado was about 7 miles west of our home (a mile south of work). A colleague lost the entire second floor of his house; many others need new roofs. Still others are still without power. So, we were fortunate.

The winds at our home were straight-line winds, but were neverthless very strong. Why is just one branch of this tree in our backyard sagging?
Because the wind was so strong that a bunch of wasps had clung to the branch to guard themselves against the wind.
The wasps made it through okay and surprisingly, so did all three saplings in our backyard.
