      See attached for a testimonial image from a hurricane-surviving array.  Notice that most all of the shingles have been removed, but the array is intact.


      Essentially, a system can be engineered to stay put in most any set of conditions reasonable.  The key there is “engineered”.   Uplift loads and pullout strengths can be carefully calculated, but I think the main problem for an array in one of these storms, against which safeguards are difficult to implement, is flying debris.
