NASA posts incredible video of Hurricane Florence from space ZlotoNews

Hurricane Florence Seen From Space

The massive storm was captured on a high-definition camera from the International Space Station as it barreled across the Atlantic Ocean with its 130 miles per hour winds.

"I have just been informed that this is one of the worst hurricanes that came to the East coast for many years".

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

The video also includes still images from NASA astronaut Ricky Arnold, who photographed the storm from the ISS.

This photo shows what it looks like deep inside the eye of Hurricane Florence, a place of relative calm for such storms. NASA's Aqua satellite is providing visible, infrared and microwave imagery while the GPM core satellite is providing additional data like rain rates throughout the storm and cloud heights.

"#HurricaneFlorence is so enormous, we could only capture her with a super wide-angle lens from the @Space_Station, 400 km directly above the eye".

"Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles (110 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 175 miles (280 km)".

The National Hurricane Center is advising people in the hurricane's path to prepare for potentially life-threatening storm surges, freshwater flooding and damaging winds as Florence impacts the USA this week.

Astronauts aboard the International Space Station have a gorgeous view of Earth whenever they want it. Governors in South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia have issued mandatory evacuations and lane reversals.

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