The Storm can refer to two separate subjects:
In Battle Royale, the storm is used as a barrier to keep players in the playable area and it will shrink until it is entirely closed in, dealing damage to players' health outside the storm circle's perimeter. Any shield is ignored. The storm's visuals will intensify and appear more deadly as the match goes on.
The storm can move during phases 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 (in competitive only).

Save The World
The Storm also refers to the purple storm that wiped out 98% of the world's population at the beginning of Save The World's story. It creates monsters and has taken over Earth in Save The World. It is unknown why or how it formed in the first place, but it seems to be hostile to any creature other than Husks, killing any creature that ventures inside.
