BHarvey
CIrma
DMaria

Correct Option: 3  

Explanation:
Irma
The maximum wind speeds of the hurricanes were: Irma 185 mph (295 km/h) which it maintained for 37 hours, the longest of any cyclone in any place around the world; Maria 175 mph (280 km/h); Harvey 130 mph (215 km/h). Maria and Irma were categorised as C5, Harvey as C4. Hurricane Katrina struck in 2005 - its maximum wind speed was 175 mph (280 km/h). The winds, although massively destructive, are only part of the effect of the hurricanes which includes many factors not least being the level and effect of the accompanying rainfall.
