NASA posts phenomenal video of Hurricane Florence from station

NASA Commemorates 9/11 with New

NASA also shared a video of the Category 4 storm from the International Space Station.

Early on Wednesday, astronaut Alexander Gerst captured this absolutely stunning image of Florence's eye from the International Space Station, some 250 miles above Earth.

In addition to the wide shots, some of Gerst's photos are zoomed-in views showing a look nearly directly down into Florence's giant eye.

As a result of bad weather killed 4 people, among them a mother with a small child.Now the force of the wind weakened, "Florence" klassificeret as a tropical storm. "Get prepared on the East Coast, this is a no-kidding nightmare coming for you", said ESA's astronaut Alexander Gerst on Twitter. The hurricane is expected to reach 150 miles per hour before landfall Thursday night.

States of emergency were declared in the Carolinas; Virginia; Washington, DC; and Maryland, where some coastal areas are still recovering from summer storms.

As Florence nears the east coast, meteorologists are focused on two key factors: ocean temperatures and wind sheer (the difference in speeds at the upper and lower parts of the storm).

Hurricane Florence, a sturdy Class four storm, may perchance well perchance presumably stall upon reaching the Carolina cruise and fabricate a diminutive shift south in direction of SC once it makes landfall, changing into "a serious flooding tournament", per Fox Data Senior Meteorologist Janice Dean.
