How about double chocking aircraft and securing all ground equipment.
I remember a storm at Glasgow when a Shorts 330 or 360 was blown upside down. Our HP Herald had a fuel truck parked in front. I was sent to check for damage, none.

re the shorts, was it obvious that the plane was upside down?

Would have been more difficult to tell with the 330 vs the 360!
