Apart from the Godlearners and a few scholors of the esoteric, no one. In fact I suspect that in most people's minds there isn't a difference between the rune, the god and the natural force. Possibly even the words are the same, the Heortling word for storm being Orlanth which is written using the storm rune. This will get confusing for outsiders over whether someone is talking about Orlanth Rex, Orlanth Thunderous, Orlanth the great god or the storm which just passed. The word Orlanth is used each time with a different tonal emphasis.
