Maybe he has had a bad experience during one, or has had terrible nightmares. Ask him. Also, to help with the fear, talk to him about exactly what is going on during one. Or get him interested in weather before a storm hits. Sit with him and talk about them during the storm. Show him they are harmless when you are inside. Sounds like he is getting some sort of anxiety or panic attack.
