NASA revealed the extent of hurricane Florence from space

A new high-definition video and photos taken from the International Space Station show the size of scope of Hurricane Florence, a Category 4 storm heading toward landfall in the Southeast U.S. later this week.

"This is a no-kidding nightmare coming for you", he added.

Nasa said the storm, now brewing above the Atlantic Ocean, had weakened to Category 1 strength, but is expected to strengthen into a Category 3 hurricane by the time it makes landfall on the United States mainland.

When Florence will reach the USA, he is the hurricane of the 4th category out of five, say.

Earlier today, the orbital post flew directly over the eye of the storm, which offered the astronauts unparalleled views of Hurricane Florence in all her might. The satellite's MODIS instrument also detected "thick rings of powerful storms" swirling around the eye of the hurricane.

NASA shared an image of the giant storm two days ago.

"The crew of @Space_Station is thinking of those who will be affected", Arnold said in a tweet.

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.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Goes-East weather-monitoring satellite captured an eye-opening loop of Florence churning in the Atlantic.
