An astronaut has captured a powerful storm from space

Hurricane Florence from space

NASA also shared this video-a "stark and sobering" view of Hurricane Florence-shot using a high-definition camera outside the ISS captured.

"Ever stared down the gaping eye of a category 4 hurricane?"

The National Hurricane Centre (NHC) notes that hurricane-force winds extended outward up to 130km from the centre and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 315km.

North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper said, 'The time to prepare is nearly over. It's estimated that 1 million people will be impacted by Florence's arrival. It is expected to move across parts of southeastern North Carolina and eastern SC on Friday and Saturday, then head north over the western Carolinas and central Appalachian Mountains early next week, the NHC said.

However, Hurricane Florence is still a huge threat to 10 million people in and around the Carolina coast as people continue to evacuate the area.




Meteorologists suggest that the hurricane will reach the U.S. East coast on September 13.

White-capped flooding lashed homes and buildings and drowned street signs while occasional residents braved the wind in the town of Swansboro.

Astronauts aboard the International Space Station say Hurricane Florence is so massive, they had to use a super wide-angle lens to capture photographs of the storm from space.

As the trough moves east, it will disrupt the winds that steer the hurricane, Stewart said.

Losses from Florence could be on par with those from two previous storms: Hurricane Hazel, which ravaged North Carolina in 1954, causing $15 billion in losses, and Hurricane Hugo in 1989, which caused $20 billion, according to a report from risk modeling firm RMS on Tuesday.
