Don't mess with Mother Nature - that's one thing we know. But this video that claimed Hurricane Hanna took down part of the border wall, or "Trump Wall" - is not true.Sources suggest Hanna was hitting them at night, and this video is taken during the day, which indicates this video does not match up with the time of the hurricane.
Border Patrol has also stated that there is no known reports of any wall falling down from Hurricane Hanna either, which has actually been downgraded to a tropical depression.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection is not aware of any border wall panels falling over due to Hurricane Hanna hitting the Rio Grande Valley Sector this past weekend. The video circulating on social media appears to be from June 2020 when high winds caused several border wall panels that were pending additional anchoring to fall over at a construction site near Deming, New Mexico.
Also this came in last night from the Caller Times:
Roderick Kise, a spokesman for U.S. Customs and Border Protection in the Rio Grande Valley, said he had received "seven or eight" media inquiries about the tweet from a journalist in Mexico showing a 39-second clip of workers in vests and hard hats watching a section of the fence being knocked over by high winds.

Kise said he was checking with authorities in Washington, but at first glance did not believe the footage was from South Texas.
"The hurricane hit us at nighttime, but looks like it was shot during the day," Kise said in an interview.

He also said the terrain did not look like the lower Rio Grande Valley.
The tweet from Yadith Valdez, whose Muck Rack page shows her affiliated with a news organization called Multosmedia.com, had been retweeted about 10,300 times and had amassed some 19,300 likes by 8 p.m. CDT Sunday.
"And so, 'Hanna' knocked down part of the border wall that is being built between the United States and Mexico," the tweet's caption, translated from Spanish to English said. "For the fury of nature, there are no borders."
So if you see the viral "Hurricane Hanna takes down Trump Wall" video going around, just know that it's not exactly true./ Last Edited by: Frank
