NASA posts incredible video of Hurricane Florence from space

NASA released a video of the hurricane on Monday as captured by cameras mounted outside the International Space Station. "It's chilling, even from space", said Alexander Gerst, an astronaut with the European Space Agency who now lives on ISS, on Twitter.

And even from space, Hurricane Florence looks terrifying.

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.

In the first tweet, Alexander Gerst shared images of the Hurricane Florence's eye as the "no-kidding nightmare" storm is swirling above the Atlantic Ocean.




Now a major hurricane with winds of 115 miles an hour and increasing, the National Hurricane Center says Florence's forecast track will take the system over the southwestern Atlantic Ocean between Bermuda and the Bahamas Tuesday and Wednesday, and Florence will approach the coast of SC or North Carolina on Thursday.

Hurricane hunter aircraft also fly through the storm, taking data on wind speed to figure out exactly how intense Florence is at any given moment.

Gerst photographed the storm 400 kilometers, or 248 miles, above the eye.

Hurricane Florence, a sturdy Class four storm, may perchance well perchance presumably stall upon reaching the Carolina cruise and fabricate a diminutive shift south in direction of SC once it makes landfall, changing into "a serious flooding tournament", per Fox Data Senior Meteorologist Janice Dean.
