NASA reveals ‘extremely dangerous’ Hurricane Florence pictures from space

WATCH Virginia governor explains preparations made for Hurricane Florence

Incredible images captured from the International Space Station show Hurricane Florence barreling toward the U.S. East Coast.

In fact, Gerst wrote on Twitter that Hurricane Florence is "so enormous" it could only fit in the frame of a wide-angle camera. "It's chilling, even from space", Gerst tweeted earlier today.

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. NASA is using its various high-flying tools to monitor the storm, taking precipitations measurements and NOAA's National Hurricane Center is using that data to forecast the storm's progress. Forecasters said Florence could become an extremely risky major hurricane sometime Monday and remain that way for days.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Goes-East weather-monitoring satellite used its lightning mapping technology for a video showing Florence, Tropical Storm Isaac and Hurricane Helene as they traveled across the Atlantic on Tuesday.

A series of zoomed-in, high-definition photographs, also released Wednesday by NASA, reveal the storm's menacing movement across the Atlantic.

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

From the International Space Station, Alexander Gerst warns the East Coast to get ready for Hurricane Florence in this photo posted to Twitter on September 12, 2018: "This is a no-kidding nightmare coming for you".
