It's the roof

Mark has another tale of Hurricane Ivan in the Cayman Islands:

Dusty and I were holding one of the box springs into place [against a window broken by the storm] and heard a horrible thumping sound coming from outside. Someone said that my car had floated up at the back and had moved. I assumed [...] that the noise we heard was my car banging into one of the pillars of the house. Coinciding with each thump was the floor shaking. We didn't know what was going on, but we didn't like it. I caught some movement out of the corner of my eye and turned and focused on it. The banging sound had been discovered. The wind was lifting up the entire side of the roof, holding it while gusting and then it was slamming back down onto the house. The deck was also starting to come up as well. Dusty and I thought we should abandon the room and go to the other side of the house.

Yeah, I'd probably do that too.
