In my narrative, prodigious gusts during a hurricane (like Katrina), felled an adjacent diseased tree that formerly stood to the right of the woodpecker nest tree seen here. When the massive, disease-worn tree crashed to the ground, it hit its smaller neighbor, snapping the nest tree at the weakened site of the nest hole.
