    Greetings – Your current webpage (Sept. 1) contains 18 images of tropical storms, all of which look essentially the same. I fully appreciate the importance of up-to-date weather forecasts to those threatened by such storms, but it seems to me that these images have very little educational or visual interest for others – presumably the majority of your viewers – and that those directly affected will look elsewhere for the latest weather information. A more balanced and varied selection of images would be welcome.
