A storm's a-brewin' - and NASA has it on tape.

As millions of people in the Carolinas and Virginia prepare for what could be historic damage from Hurricane Florence, people in space are keeping an eye on it from above.

The agencies' fleet of satellites track various elements, including location, wind speed, rainfall, and temperature.

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

Hurricane Florence continues its march towards the East Coast of the United States today, and astronauts aboard the International Space Station got a birds-eye view of just how large the swirling vortex has grown.

Wednesday, the Category 4 storm was about 435 miles southeast of Wilmington, N.C., and moving northwest at about 16 mph. Almost 1000 prisoners in SC will not be moved from their cells, despite a mandatory evacuation order in the area.


The hurricane, which has already caused several Week 3 college football games to be rescheduled, postponed or canceled, is expected to make landfall sometime this weekend.

And even from space, Hurricane Florence looks terrifying.

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

"The National Hurricane Middle forecasts extra strengthening for Florence earlier to it reaches the shoreline of North Carolina and SC early Friday, Sept. 14", NASA wrote within the description of the video. NASA astronauts used a super wide-angle lens to capture the footage of Hurricane Florence, due to the massive size of it.
