Hurricane Florence seen from space is a 'no-kidding nightmare'

Hurricane Florence Seen From Space

"#HurricaneFlorence is so enormous, we could only capture her with a super wide-angle lens from the @Space_Station, 400 km directly above the eye. It's chilling, even from space", said Alexander Gerst, an astronaut with the European Space Agency who now lives on ISS, on Twitter.

Hurricane Florence is predicted to slam into the US East Coast as an "extremely unsafe major hurricane" overnight on Thursday.

The US National Hurricane Centre has warned that Hurricane Florence will bring "life-threatening, catastrophic flash flooding" to North and SC.

"Hurricane Florence may now be dipping a bit south and hitting a portion of the Great State of Georgia", he wrote. He said on Wednesday that the ISS's crew "is thinking of those who will be affected". For the Carolinas, the NHC predicts a "life-threatening storm surge and rainfall".

Hurricane hunter aircraft also fly through the storm, taking data on wind speed to figure out exactly how intense Florence is at any given moment.

This video was taken as Florence churned across the Atlantic in a west-northwesterly direction with winds of 130 miles an hour.

USA threatens sanctions on ICC, prosecution of officials
Bolton said neither Afghanistan nor any other government party to the ICC's Rome Statute has requested an investigation. Similar measures will be taken against any company or state that assists an ICC investigation of Americans , he said.

It's officially hurricane season.

Arnold shared his first photos of Hurricane Florence, taken when it was still a Category 2 storm. An astronaut aboard the space station said it was "chilling".

NASA's Aqua satellite caught Hurricane Florence developing an eye Sunday as the storm ramped up its intensity.

National Aeronautics and space administration (NASA) revealed the extent of hurricane Florence, which is close to the coast of the United States.

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.
