blown out?

I returned home from work today to find four plastic panels out of my greenhouse, and one of the roof spars hanging. is this wind? vandals? an earthquake? I can't work out how its happened.
a panel from the door and two panels from the side were inside the greenhouse, a panel from the roof was against the hedge and one panel very squint as one of the supporting roof spars had come away from its bolt...
some clips inside, and some out, some missing.......
well, not very nice weather to be bolting and clipping and standing on buckets to reach. but its done. hope it stays secure!!
just need somebody tall to do the final clips on the outside of the roof

It sounds like the wind - we've had some pretty bad gusts over this way. Some of my plant pots are really heavy and they're still getting blown over. Well done on getting it fixed back up so quickly .
Looking at a cold blast again tomorrow night but at least better than 'down under' with that cyclone.
Bests :)

Very windy here for the last 2 days but thankfully no damage.

More likely wind than vandals from the description you made. I'm glad you got it repaired and hope you have a tall friend or know someone who owns a ladder :-)

the greenhouse is holdind together with only half the amount of clips on those panes it should have, and its been really windy all wekk so I lean towards there having been human intervention in the coming apart.
