As pointed out this is a BIG miss. Certainly not enough thought about

People in the path of a hurriacne will want to see the radar images they 
normally have access to
so they can make decisions about protecting their property and themselves.

Radio provides essential information but images convey far more than 
radio can in an emergency.
One picture is worth a thousand words and that's 30 pictures per second.
