Should renters pay for wind damage?

My husband & I rent a house that had the front storm door blown off due to high winds. As we did not leave the door unlatched & high winds were prevalent in the area that day, I do not see why we should have to pay for it as we did not cause the damage.

Ohio Revised Code indicates the landlord is responsible for these types of repair as they would be covered under their homeowner’s insurance policy.

Can anyone please comment?
