No good deed goes unpunished.
It could be dangerous to break up a large storm like that.
These storms are very large transfers of energy.
From Ocean, to the atmosphere.
I believe these transfers of energy are important to the balance of global weather.
This might sound silly but, imagine a toilet flushing.
Swirling around, then shooting down the plumbing.
Turn that whole idea upside down, but the toilet still flushes, upwards now.
A hurricane is like a GIGANTIC, upside down toilet.
Driven by heat, instead of gravity.
The Ocean is the BOWL, The EYE, is the Plumbing.
The warm air, moisture laden, shoots UP, through the eye, (the flushing)
depositing the heat in the upper atmosphere, then condensing as rain, and cooling the Ocean.
I think it might be bad, to not let the toilet flush every now and then..
