A three-minute video that NASA published Wednesday morning shows Hurricane Florence from a space-station's-eye view, as a camera some 250 miles above earth pans slowly over the storm.

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

From his orbiting perch, Gerst offered Earthlings yet another warning about the hurricane's dangers: "Get prepared on the East Coast, this is a no-kidding nightmare coming for you".

Gerst photographed the storm 400 kilometers, or 248 miles, above the eye.

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

According to the NHC advisory, Hurricane Florence is now located 575 miles (925 km) south-southeast of Bermuda and 1,230 miles (1,985 km) east-southeast of Cape Fear, North Carolina. For the Carolinas, the NHC predicts a "life-threatening storm surge and rainfall".

This photo provided by NASA shows Hurricane Florence from the International Space Station on Monday, Sept. 10, 2018, as it threatens the U.S. East Coast. Gerst wrote. "It's chilling, even from space".

Florence, a Category 4 hurricane, is less than 48 hours from making landfall on America's southeastern coast, where more than a million people have been ordered to flee their homes.
