Musk and SpaceX confirmed those reports early Wednesday morning via Twitter, saying the damage will take weeks to fix.
The current test vehicle is 30 feet across and 180 feet tall. According to the Verge, Musk tweeted that the Starship'smooring blocks broke during 50 mile per hour winds and that the fairing will take weeks to fix, though its propellant tanks are fine.
The test hopper isn't a full-size version of the Starship but a smaller version of it with three engines compared to seven on the main rocket.
This particular model will be used to test short launches and landings. Unfortunately for the company, Starhopper didn't make it out unscathed, and Musk estimates that it will take weeks to patch things up.

"Whoops. Starship Hopper nosecone has been blown over in high winds", Bergin said of the picture. Musk and Gwynne Shotwell, the president and chief operating officer of SpaceX, call the ship the "test hopper" because it's not created to launch to Mars or even into orbit around Earth.
Although Musk stated on January 5 that he meant to test the hopper in "four weeks", the SpaceX CEO speculated that it would probably take twice that long given the likelihood of "unforeseen issues".
The Starship is made of stainless steel instead of carbon fiber due to a combination of its relative ease of use and lower cost. The first orbital prototype should be ready by June. The image shared by Musk harked to old sci-fi movies, with its ship featuring a shiny stainless steel body and an American flag.
