Since a “roll of thunder” usually presages lightning and a storm, often people worry what will happen to them when a severe storm comes.  The storm in Mildred Taylor’s book is the storm of racial anger against the Logans.  As they strive to keep their property, the Logans may be hoping that the storm unleashed against them is not going to destroy them.
