"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 said in a tweet.

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

And even from space, Hurricane Florence looks terrifying.

On Wednesday morning, a high-definition video camera outside of the International Space Station recorded footage of Hurricane Florence. We now have three different hurricanes brewing in different areas of the ocean.Florence, Isaac, and Helene. "The crew of @Space_Station is thinking of those who will be affected".

The camera "captured a stark and sobering view" of the storm below "as it churned across the Atlantic with winds of 130 miles an hour", NASA said on Twitter.

David de Gea was among those who tweeted Shaw and the injury would have affected him given the pair are club teammates. Everyone will be hoping that the full-back can make a quick recovery. " I'm a fighter so I will be back soon! ".


Despite the storm being still some distance away from land, the National Hurricane Center has confirmed it is on track to hit the area around North and SC by Friday.

Quick on Florence's heels, two more powerful storms are crossing the Atlantic, tracked by NASA satellites: Tropical Storm Isaac and Hurricane Helene.

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.

Images are coming out from the International Space Station that reflect the monstrous size of Florence expected to hammer the Carolinas. "NASA research has found that cloud top temperatures that cold have the capability to generate heavy rainfall", the space agency says.
