Hurricane Florence on collision course with Carolinas

NASA images show how massive Florence is

Astronaut Ricky Arnold, onboard the International Space Station, captured the hurricane churning in the Atlantic as it morphed into a monster storm. "While some weakening is expected to begin by late Thursday, Florence is still forecast to be an extremely unsafe major hurricane when it nears the US coast on Friday", the NHC said in an 11 a.m.

"Get prepared on the East Coast, this is a no-kidding nightmare coming for you", he added. Forecasters said Florence could become an extremely risky major hurricane sometime Monday and remain that way for days.

Meanwhile, NASA's Aqua satellite snapped an infrared image of Hurricane Florence on September 11, at 2:30 a.m. EDT.

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

"The crew of @Space_Station is thinking of those who will be affected", Arnold said in a tweet. Since reliable record-keeping began more than 150 years ago, North Carolina has only been hit by one Category 4 hurricane: Hazel, with 210 km/h winds in 1954.

"The earliest reasonable time that tropical-storm-force winds will reach the coast of the Carolinas is Wednesday night, but the most likely time is Thursday morning", the National Hurricane Center said.

While meteorologists warn of the strength and size of Hurricane Florence, nothing is more eye-opening than actually seeing the storm, especially from space. Gerst wrote. "It's chilling, even from space".
