If a strong storm blows against the front of a car, is it better to stop the car and wait the storm out or use the horsepower of the car against the storm and drive on? 

Does the horsepower of the car cancel some of the strenghts of the storm out?

    If you're in an area where there is no trees to fall on you and you can see where you're going reduce your speed to like 40 miles an hour and continue to drive.

    If it becomes hard to drive because of a very strong wind rain hail or whatever pull over and wait it out

    The issue is that when the car is moving and there is a gust, any turing force applied to the car is transferred to the steering wheel. Thus, if you can not hold the steering wheel against that force, the car will swerve. When the car is static the same forces are there but because the car isn't moving forward it doesn't move sideways either.
