Our horses are out 24x7 with a strong shelter, trees, and a large thicket to choose from. If the storms are particular severe, e.g. tornado warnings or a hurricane, we'll put on their halters that are marked with their name and phone #. Otherwise, it's business as usual.
The wind is your biggest concern. Ours will typically avoid the trees and stay in or next to their shelter, but keep in mind that once the winds reach a certain speed (tornado or hurricane eye), shelter and barn structures will be no match for weather and you just have to hope for the best.
On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.
