  • Astronaut Ricky Arnold captured this image of Hurricane Florence from the International Space Station on Monday

At 1:55 a.m. EDT (0555 UTC) on September 10, the MODIS instrument aboard NASA's Aqua satellite looked at Hurricane Florence in infrared light. Packing heavy winds with a maximum sustained wind speed of 130 miles per hour (195 km/h), the hurricane is slowly barreling toward the U.S. East Coast, at a speed of approximately 13 miles per hour (20 km/h).

When Florence will reach the USA, he is the hurricane of the 4th category out of five, say.

Hurricane Florence is approaching the Eastern Coast of the United States with serious fervor.

"The National Hurricane Center forecasts additional strengthening for Florence before it reaches the coastline of North Carolina and SC early Friday, Sept. 14", NASA wrote in the description of the video.

A series of zoomed-in, high-definition photographs, also released Wednesday by NASA, reveal the storm's menacing movement across the Atlantic.

The International Space Station captured photos and video of massive Hurricane Florence spiraling over the Atlantic, and those images captivated people on social media.


This photo from Arnold is one of many on his Twitter feed of the Earth from the International Space Station.

Hurricane Florence is expected to make landfall on Thursday and will most heavily impact the coastal states of South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia.

The element will lead to a "life-threatening storm surges, exceptionally strong heavy rains and destructive winds", they say.

Happy #FullDiskFriday! #GOESEast is keeping an eye on Tropical Storm #Florence from 22,300 miles out in space.

About 1.7 million people in North and SC and Virginia were under warnings to evacuate.

The NASA astronaut Ricky Arnold has also been following the giant storm.
