Hurricane Florence from space

14 September 2018

Hurricane Florence is shaping up to be a frightful storm, and it does not look any better when you look at it from space.

But on Wednesday, a high definition camera outside the International Space Station captured a detailed and sobering view of Hurricane Florence from above.

The hurricane, which has already caused several Week 3 college football games to be rescheduled, postponed or canceled, is expected to make landfall sometime this weekend. It is expected start affecting North Carolina and SC as early as September 13.

Florence is now a powerful Category 3 storm with winds of 125mph, and is expected to strengthen before making landfall along the Carolina coast later this week.

The massive power behind Hurricane Florence resulted in awesome, and downright terrifying, images and videos taken from space.

Watching the scene unfold from space, German Alexander Gerst, an astronaut on board the ISS, tweeted photos of the enormous storm.

The US National Hurricane Centre has warned that Hurricane Florence will bring "life-threatening, catastrophic flash flooding" to North and SC.

NASA also posted an incredible video of Hurricane Florence viewed from space.

The National Hurricane Center warned Monday there could be a "life-threatening" storm surge, rip currents, and freshwater flooding along the coasts of South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia, plus damaging hurricane-force winds at the coasts and further inland.
