In disasters, it is common for all communications circuits to get overloaded and become difficult to send data or voice.  In addition, cell phone towers and telephone lines in the area of the disaster are subject to being damaged and not functioning any more.  I would imagine that 'disaster recovery' can't start until services are restored.

Note that emergency services bring in their own portable communications shelters that can provide radio and computer services in times of disasters.

Not that I know of.  But then it depends on the size of the disaster.  Super Storm Sandy and Hurricane Katrina pretty much wiped out everything in their paths.  But tornadoes in Oklahoma often leave everything beside their path untouched.  I suppose you could install satellite internet.  It's pretty expensive and slow and requires an outdoor antenna which could be damaged by the weather.
