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.

Watching the scene unfold from space, German Alexander Gerst, an astronaut on board the ISS, tweeted photos of the enormous storm.

NASA also posted an incredible video of Hurricane Florence viewed from space.

The 500-mile-wide hurricane, which is barreling toward the United States east coast, is expected to make landfall on Thursday night, but then the storm's movement will slow to a crawl, meaning that some coastal areas will get as much as 24 hours of battering winds and rain.

Florence is now a powerful Category 3 storm with winds of 125mph, and is expected to strengthen before making landfall along the Carolina coast later this week.

Gerst was in absolute awe of the storm, as we all would be, saying the storm was so wide they could only capture it with a wide angle lens.

Another photo (embedded below) was snapped on September 10 by astronaut Ricky Arnold while aboard the International Space Station.

NASA is also using is technology and satellites to provide updates of Florence here, tracking the storm as it prepares to hit the southeastern U.S. The space agency described the footage as "a stark and sobering" view of the storm, as it moved with wind speeds of 130 miles per hour.

In the past, NASA has leveraged its technology and resources to help with hurricane relief efforts.
