Ridge cap shingles blew off

Got a hip roof in FL , about 4 years old. On the upwind side i lost around 15 ridge shingles. They pulled thru all 4 roofing nails, leaving the nails intact. I will suppose no cement is typically used, certainly the case here.
i was able to retrieve the shingles and used the large “fender washer” roofing nails this time, plus wet/dry cement. Any advice for the other ridges? This was just 70 mph gusts, This time…😳
