OneShot: Florence, A Silent View From Space

Hurricane Florence from space

A new high-definition video and photos taken from the International Space Station show the size of scope of Hurricane Florence, a Category 4 storm heading toward landfall in the Southeast U.S. later this week.

European Space Agency astronaut Alexander Gerst snapped some photos of his own to share on Twitter on Wednesday. It's chilling, even from space.

Hurricane Florence is now a powerful Category 4 hurricane and is expected to make a unsafe impact once it makes landfall along the coast of the southeast US later this week.

In the first tweet, Alexander Gerst shared images of the Hurricane Florence's eye as the "no-kidding nightmare" storm is swirling above the Atlantic Ocean. It is estimated that the wind speed in the eye of the hurricane reaches 200 km/h.




The ISS was flying 255 miles (410 kilometers) above the storm when it got the footage, which NASA describes as "dramatic".

Forecasters have warned of life-threatening storm surges, catastrophic flooding, damaging winds, and risky rip currents along the coastlines of North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia.

The US National Hurricane Center said Hurricane Florence maximum sustained winds were 115 miles per hour as any other regular Category 3 storm, on Wednesday at 8 PM EDT.
