NASA footage reveals the 'menacing' Hurricane Florence

Astronauts had to use super wide-angle lens to photograph Hurricane Florence because it’s so huge

But between evacuations and storm shutter installations, NASA and NOAA are keeping people informed and entertained.

"Hurricane Florence may now be dipping a bit south and hitting a portion of the Great State of Georgia", he wrote.

A total of 3 storms have been spotted by the satellites as of September 13: Joyce, Isaac, and Helene.

North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper said the impact of the storm would be widespread, hitting the coast early Friday morning. The size of the storm and its expected staying power will make life tough for anyone who decides to try to ride it out (which is not a good idea).


Hurricane Florence, a powerful Category 4 storm, could stall upon reaching the Carolina coast and make a slight shift south toward SC once it makes landfall, becoming "a major flooding event", according to Fox News Senior Meteorologist Janice Dean.

Hurricane Florence has reportedly been causing 80-plus feet waves.

The video was taken on Tuesday as Florence churned across the Atlantic in a west-northwesterly direction with winds of 130 miles per hour.

Viewed through the wide-angle camera of the International Space Station which orbits at 250 miles (400 kilometers) above Earth, Hurricane Florence appears swirling above the Atlantic Ocean as it's moving west-northwest towards the North and SC. Watch out, America! Hurricane Florence is so enormous that we could only capture her with a super wide-angle lens from the International Space Station, 400 km directly above the eye.
