What happened to my Strat?

I put flatwound strings on my Fender Stratocaster for the first time today, and now the bridge has done something very weird. Instead of lying flush with the body, the part closest to the butt of the guitar angles upward, as if the entire assembly is being pulled more by the strings than it can handle. The springs under the back plate seem to allow a bit of travel, so is this normal? Will these new strings destroy my bridge, or my neck?
