Hurricane Florence is shaping up to be a disgusting storm, and it does not look any better when you look at it from space.

"This photo shows the enormous size of Hurricane Florence, taken with a wide-angle lens from the International Space Station, almost 250 miles directly above the eye of the storm", they tweeted.

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.

"Ever stared down the gaping eye of a category 4 hurricane", Gerst asked on Twitter. In the States of Maryland and Virginia imposed a state of emergency.

Forecasters talked about Florence may perchance well perchance presumably change into an especially unhealthy considerable hurricane one day Monday and live that formulation for days.

NASA itself uploaded a video of Hurricane Florence that was taken by the high-definition camera located outside the International Space Station.

It is estimated that the wind speed in the eye of the hurricane reaches more than 200 kilometers per hour.

The National Hurricane Center, a division of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, said that Hurricane Florence may lead to a life-threatening storm surge and rainfall. The photo shows the churning storm, which according to Arnold, was later joined by Hurricane Isaac and Hurricane Helene.
