Hurricane Florence from space

Florence turns beastly before hitting East Coast, plus Rowan storm forecast

According to the NHC advisory, Hurricane Florence is now located 575 miles (925 km) south-southeast of Bermuda and 1,230 miles (1,985 km) east-southeast of Cape Fear, North Carolina.

"Ever stared down the gaping eye of a Category 4 hurricane?"

A high-definition camera outside the International Space Station captured video Tuesday.

Hurricane Florence, now a Category 4 storm, is a 'no-kidding nightmare, ' warns German astronaut Alexander Gerst. "It's chilling, even from space", European Space Agency astronaut Alexander Gerst said in a tweet on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, NASA's Aqua satellite snapped an infrared image of Hurricane Florence on September 11, at 2:30 a.m. EDT.

Here are some of the best images of Hurricane Florence by Gerst and Ricky Arnold, a fellow NASA astronaut living aboard the ISS. For the Carolinas, the NHC predicts a "life-threatening storm surge and rainfall".

"The earliest reasonable time that tropical-storm-force winds will reach the coast of the Carolinas is Wednesday night, but the most likely time is Thursday morning", the National Hurricane Center said. Since reliable record-keeping began more than 150 years ago, North Carolina has only been hit by one Category 4 hurricane: Hazel, with 210 km/h winds in 1954.

Hurricane Florence is now a powerful Category 4 hurricane and is expected to make a risky impact once it makes landfall along the coast of the southeast US later this week. "It's chilling, even from space", he wrote in another tweet.

NASA called the view - captured by cameras on the International Space Station - "stark and sobering".

Astronaut Alexander Gerst provides a view straight down into the eye of Hurricane Florence, headed toward the U.S. Southeast as of September 12, 2018.
