A high definition camera outside the International Space Station captured a NASA view of the eye of Hurricane Florence
And here is video from inside Hurricane Florence.
The National Hurricane Center forecasts additional strengthening for Florence before it reaches the coastline of North Carolina and SC early Friday, Sept. 14. Florence is expected to remain a Category 4 storm when it makes landfall.
The bone-chilling photos were posted to Twitter by German astronaut Alexander Gerst, of the European Space Agency, who commented on the importance of seeing "the big picture" and urged people to mind the official evacuation orders and "stay safe down there!"
According to NASA, this footage of Hurricane Florence was captured by astronaut Ricky Arnold on the the International Space Station at 8:10 am ET on September 10.
In fact, Gerst wrote on Twitter that Hurricane Florence is "so enormous" it could only fit in the frame of a wide-angle camera.
From his orbiting perch, Gerst offered Earthlings yet another warning about the hurricane's dangers: "Get prepared on the East Coast, this is a no-kidding nightmare coming for you". "The crew of @Space_Station is thinking of those who will be affected". For the Carolinas, the NHC predicts a "life-threatening storm surge and rainfall". Arnold shared his first photos of Hurricane Florence, taken when it was still a Category 2 storm.
According to the forecast of meteorologists from the National centre for monitoring hurricanes, the US, South-East mainland territory of the country hurricane Florence will arrive on Thursday, September 13, and will hit the coast with wind speed above 230 km/h.
A camera aboard the International Space Station recorded video of Hurricane Florence on Wednesday morning, when it was about 500 miles offshore.
And even from space, Hurricane Florence looks terrifying.
