    you ought to say either "of a hurricane" or "of hurricanes".  need to let us know what hurricane, a generic hurricane, or hurricanes in general, but you cannot just say "hurricane" because it is not a name.  needs an article 9to tell us if it is a specific or general one) or plural (to indicate hurricanes in total and not individually) to make the article unnecessary.

    The second is correct. An indefinite article, or a definite article (the), is required.

    "Hurricane" is a countable noun. You can talk about the raw power of a hurricane or the raw power of hurricanes.
