That would be so disappointing Jeff. Mine are in a fairly sheltered position surrounded by a 6 foot fence on 2 sides and densely planted so they self support

You are lucky to have,  one of my banana’s with fruit developing decided to bend in half half way up the plant in the wind if it blew over could try and save  but looks terminal .
