Not really. 'raw power' is a common idiom with a common understanding to mean very forceful. 'rough power' and 'tough power' is just word salad that doesn't evoke the same idea.

I would rathervthan you understood more about "articles"!
Is your native language Slavic?
That group of languages don't use articles.

They do not have the same meaning. Raw could be unchecked, rough is not fine or polished, and touch means difficult, unruly, or the equivalent.

You may be able to interchange them in a few contexts but NO, they don't have the same meaning. In the context of a hurricane, only "raw" will do.
May I suggest you form the habit of consulting a dictionary?

No native English-speaker would call the power of a hurricane rough or tough.

raw and rough are synonymous. raw can mean bitter.
tough isn't really synonymous, since something could be raw and fragile - eg raw edges.

Similar, but "raw" is the strongest. In the context used it means an uncontrollable force of nature. I don't think we would use 'tough', although we would know what you meant.
