I'm posting the same comment at all five of these photos, just in case someone views only one of them: I drove trucks for 27 years and can vouch for the fact that all that airspace between the road and the underside/bottom of the trailer can and DOES catch a lot of wind. Crosswinds can lift a trailer so that the tires on the side nearest the wind sometimes lose contact with the ground -- and as is proven by these photos -- and if there is enough wind, can be turned over. Thank you for taking and sharing these candid photos. It is my hope that people will view trucks as something that can be very vulnerable during such storms.
