    D. flooding

    Explanation:

    The hurricane brings in enormous amounts of rainfall with it, often resulting in flooding. The ground squirrels in this scenario live relatively close to the ocean shore. They live in burrows, spending big portion of their time in them, as well as having their young ones sheltered in them. The heavy rainfall and the flooding of the area will result in filling the burrows with water. The damage for the population of ground squirrels will be enormous, with their young ones all drowning for sure, and the majority of the adults getting drowned as well, or maybe even all of them.
