A storm's a-brewin' - and NASA has it on tape.

On the forecast track, the centre of Florence will move near or over the coast of southern North Carolina and eastern SC in the hurricane warning area today.

The Hurricane season 2018 is expected to last till November. Forecasters talked about Florence may perchance well perchance presumably change into an especially unhealthy considerable hurricane one day Monday and live that formulation for days.

"Watch out, America! Hurricane Florence is so enormous, we could only capture her with a super wide-angle lens from the Space Station", European astronaut Alexander Gerst wrote in a tweet.

A new high-definition video and photos taken from the International Space Station show the size of scope of Hurricane Florence, a Category 4 storm heading toward landfall in the Southeast U.S. later this week.

A Category 4 hurricane at its strongest, Olivia spent about a week swishing around in the Pacific Ocean without making landfall before it weakened into a tropical storm.

The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA's Terra satellite, meanwhile, snapped a truly awesome photo of the whirlwind, creeping closer to the American south.
