Are we serious with roof and storm tie downs

Over the last day or so we have had winds a along the eastern coast of Australia, the winds in Sydney area approximately 45klm per hours gusting up to 60klm per hour and now we find that a roof has been blown off from Wanda Surf Club, I am somewhat confused to why this would happen, but of cause I could guess.  Property onWanda the water you would expect to be constructed in a manner to expect even greater heavy weather due to the obvious exposure.  No!! 1st view of a photo tells me the battens to the roof are fixed but there appears to be little top no tie downs from the batten to the roof frame and most likely continues down the building.  Cyclone provisions in my view the BCA (Building Code of Australia),  should be followed to these areas and it is a travesty it wasn’t.
