'The symptoms you describe, other than the wind, are classic signs of a loose neutral. This causes the voltage to go down on one of the hot phases while it goes up on the other phase. Your house wiring & old fashioned appliances can handle this fairly well, but your electronic equipment can be damaged.
My advice is to unplug any electronic equipment.. Get an electrician on site as soon as possible. I suspect that the loose neutral could be associated with the service drop to your house, possibly at the weatherhead. You might get the power company to check that and ask them to check inside the meter base.
Good luck, let us know the outcome.
