    Re: blown or blowing

    "Blowing" would be better, but it is not needed.

    The hurricane's winds destroyed everything. It is obvious that wind was blowing.

    The hurricane destroyed everything. We know hurricanes have wind. That's what they are.

    Note the correct spelling of "de​stroyed".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
