[tomato] tomato cluster support?

It was a bit windy yesterday and a cluster of tomatoes, weighing apprx 4+
lbs (big tomatoes on the clusters!) completely snapped off from the main
stem. I have other clusters with even larger tomatoes on them, and was
wondering if they too will eventually break off if I don't provide some
sort of support. Was this just a quirk from a windy day or will I have to
limit the number of fruits per cluster in the future? Thanks, Irene
