NASA Footage Shows Strengthening Hurricane Florence From Space”

NASA astronaut Ricky Arnold shared views from the International Space Station, which orbits around 250 miles (400 kilometers) above the Earth.

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

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

"Watch out, America! Hurricane Florence is so enormous, we could only capture her with a super wide-angle lens from the Space Station", European astronaut Alexander Gerst wrote in a tweet.

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

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

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

Millions of people in the path of Hurricane Florence are frantically preparing for a monster storm that's anticipated to make landfall sometime early Saturday morning.

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. Winds this morning reached 130 miles per hour (200 km/h) and will likely strengthen before it arrives, officials said.

The weather agency also warned "life-threatening freshwater flooding is likely from a prolonged and exceptionally heavy rainfall event".

NASA also recorded what it called "stark and sobering" video footage of Florence from the space station on Wednesday.

.

New video from NASA shows Hurricane Florence on its course toward the USA on Monday, September 10, as the National Weather Service upgraded the rapidly strengthening hurricane to Category 4 status.

And even from space, Hurricane Florence looks terrifying.
