Here's a video from Flugsnug illustrating how turboprop commuter airliners struggle in cross-winds when landing. They don't have the weight or high wing loading of jet airliners, which can cut through turbulence more easily, so they're more badly affected. Watch it in full-screen mode for best results.
I'm glad I wasn't aboard any of those puddle-jumpers for those landings. They're even more scary when you realize that the pilots of those planes are very likely to be recently qualified and relatively inexperienced, building hours at the lowest level of the airline business before being 'promoted' to the bigger jets. Personally, I'd want the most experienced pilot available in the cockpit during landings like that!
