Hurricane Florence is currently a powerful Category 4 hurricane and is expected to make a dangerous impact once it makes landfall along the coast of the southeast U.S. later this week.
To show the size and power of the storm, a number of photos taken Monday from the International Space Station and astronaut Ricky Arnold show Florence’s girth as the storm churns across the Atlantic Ocean.
Cameras outside the station captured views of Hurricane Florence in the Atlantic at 8:10 a.m. EDT Sept. 10. With winds of 115 miles an hour it could make landfall along the eastern seaboard of the U.S. late Thursday or early Friday. pic.twitter.com/DhEHhSeeDx
