This Insane Photo Of Hurricane Florence Is Going Viral

Hurricane Florence from the International Space Station

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

Incredible images captured from the International Space Station show Hurricane Florence barreling toward the U.S. East Coast. However, that does not make the hurricane any less frightening.

Up to 10 million people lie in the path of the storm, which still poses a risk to life and property, although it has been downgraded to a Category 2 hurricane.

The massive power behind Hurricane Florence resulted in unbelievable, and downright terrifying, images and videos taken from space. The hurricane is expected to reach 150 miles per hour before landfall Thursday night.

Watch out, America! Hurricane Florence is so enormous that we could only capture her with a super wide-angle lens from the International Space Station, 400 km directly above the eye. Get prepared on the East Coast, this is a no-kidding nightmare coming for you. "It's chilling, even from space", said Alexander Gerst, an astronaut with the European Space Agency who now lives on ISS, on Twitter.

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

Those warily staring at Florence grasp in contrast it to Hurricanes Fran and Hugo, which pummeled North Carolina and SC, respectively, more than two decades ago.

Hurricane Florence has reportedly been causing 80-plus feet waves.
