30mph is too much. Did the low pressure mess up the barometer reading

You can see from looking at "birdy" (the orientation indicator) that Tello was at full attitude angle when the wind pushed it over the house. Throttle or not would not make much of a difference then.
Flying in these conditions is OK only if you have a spare Tello.

30+ wind is difficult for a hefty GPS drone to handle; you are lucky.
a) what flight software are you using
b) when the alt is at 80 or more feet and you are flying over yourself and vehicle, it looks like your are close to 25-30 feet up. ??

Looks like TelloFPV to me... (only available for Android, no iOS version planned)
Yes, Tello FPV. and yes, sorry only Android.
The Altitude going haywire is Tello's barometer not the app. When you reach ~90 ft. or higher Tello's firmware starts limiting the throttle so I could not thrust any higher. Any lower I hit the house. I was "pinned" so to speak. I wasn't watching the altimeter so when I thrusted up nothing happened. My immediate thought is I have lost control. My only choice was to crash land before Tello flies away.
