    Is the wind not blowing into the cracks in the rest of the house pressurizing the house a little and then forcing the damper to open.
    Wind has to get back out some how.
    Just one way to notice a house is loose.

    Run the furnace blower if you have one to circulate the humid air out of the bathroom and into the rest of the house.

    Dampers on an outside wall tend to flap because of wind. One simple solution to try is to glue a large metal washer to the outside of the flap to make it a little heavier. Use silicone glue so if it doesn't work you can just pry it off.

    you need

    a hood or bonnet to cover the louvers. This will keep the louvers from the weather elements including wind
