Wind is one of the most common types of damage found on asphalt shingle roofs even though they start at a 60 mph manufacture limited wind warranty. One of the issues that are commonly not addressed is that over the life of a shingle, they become more brittle every day with age, leaving them endlessly becoming more susceptible to wind damage. It would not be surprising to see a 20 year old three tab shingle receive damage from 50 mph wind gusts.
Keep in mind that strong winds can appear without a thunderstorm or tornado. A windy day can cause debris such as trash, lawn ornaments and patio furniture to take flight, hit your roof, and puncture it. You also need to consider tree damage. Tree branches could fall onto your roof and cause damage; so make sure to trim any branches above your home or business.
