I don't if I know a storm is on the way, but they help if your not in camp when it's hit. There is a limit, that even the poles wouldn't help, but I know for sure at 35 to 40 mph they work
But if it's going to blow like that all day I would just leave it.rolled up
But they do help in a gust, which could send it flying.

Mine survived 60+ mph winds and a tree branch that fell on the awning while we were sitting under it

The poles are a major component and strongest part of the system I my opinion, what and how you anchor your awning hold poles is a large factor on survival of the awning in sudden winds.

OC has rachet straps that have a reel made onto them so the straps never get tangled up when storing
