Amazing new photos show hurricane Florence from space

Images from the international space station show the scale of the incoming hurricane Florence, which hits the east coast of the US.

Hurricane Florence is approaching the US and although it has now been relegated to a category two storm, 10 million people remain under some form of storm watch. Georgia is the last state to declare a state of emergency after North and South Carolina, Washington DC and Maryland.

From 2 am EDT today (September 13), Florence was about 37 kilometers east and southeast of Wilmington, North Carolina, and 450 kilometers east and southeast of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

A storm from space

Yesterday morning astronaut Alexander Gerst shared images of the International Space Station (ISS) of the enormous storm. He described the storm as "not a crazy nightmare" and said that he and the American astronaut Ricky Arnold had captured the images with a special, super-wide-angle lens when the storm drove to the east of the US. NASA cameras have caught the storm earlier in September when it churned across the North Atlantic.
