What a catastrophe. If I had ever spoken of the stability of any of our nests I would have put Delta 2 near the top. Oops. Of course we don't usually get these high winds in the summer when the trees are fully leafed-in and offering full resistance.
The question has been asked, could we put in a replacement pole since the area simply has few suitable trees for natural nesting? Certainly the territory of this pair does not appear to have any big trees left. The simple answer is yes. The more complex part is pulling it together in 2 weeks.
