There are several Aerial Hazards in the game, some of them come as a strong gust of wind but the other may appear as a very threatening Tornado.
Strong Winds Edit
There are several notable strong winds located throughout the game, especially on the Lyre peak. The strong winds are mostly harmless and would only serve as an obstacle.
In the v0.10 update, the tornado was introduced as a new hazard and it's capable of causing a great amount of destruction. Even the largest and heaviest machine can easily be knocked down by the tornado. Tornadoes appear in the level Valley of the Winds.
The damage it causes is scaled to the average height of the machine. Huge machines can be taken down easily, but a machine with a height of one block is barely lifted.
