If they are Orlanthi, surprisingly well. I do not think that the Orlanthi are hindered by the storm and its effect - quite the opposite. I think that the storm augments them all like a Guardian entity (which in a way it is). I imagine that they sing songs of praise and joy, knowing that they are the presence of the Thunderer.  

The opposite happens to the Dara Happans.
