NASA revealed the extent of hurricane Florence from space

Forecasters are also tracking two more hurricanes that have formed to the east of Florence: Hurricane Helene, which strengthened to a Category 2 storm off the west coast of Africa today, and Hurricane Isaac, a Category 1 storm now located roughly halfway between Florence and Helene.

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. "Gather prepared on the East Fly, right here's a no-kidding nightmare coming for you".

Hurricane Florence had already reached the fourth category out of five possible, the state of emergency was introduced in the States of Maryland and Virginia. The storm may not be spinning solo much longer, as three other disturbances are brewing in the Atlantic.

The photos in Gerst's post capture Florence mid-churn, winds up to 130 miles per hour whipping around the storm's eye.

According to Wednesday morning's update from the National Hurricane Center, Florence could park off the coast of the Carolinas on Friday, bringing damaging winds and even extreme storm surges to coastal areas.




Nasa said the storm, now brewing above the Atlantic Ocean, had weakened to Category 1 strength, but is expected to strengthen into a Category 3 hurricane by the time it makes landfall on the United States mainland.

"The crew of @Space_Station is thinking of those who will be affected", Arnold said in a tweet.

The storm, which is poised to affect millions this week in the southeastern US, is "expected to bring life-threatening storm surge and rainfall" to North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia, and parts of the Mid-Atlantic states, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) said.

Quick on Florence's heels, two more powerful storms are crossing the Atlantic, tracked by NASA satellites: Tropical Storm Isaac and Hurricane Helene.
