HOUSTON – While meteorologists warn of the strength and size of Hurricane Florence, nothing is more eye-opening than actually seeing the storm, especially from space.

Astronauts have been sharing astonishing photos of Florence from space
Watch out, America! #HurricaneFlorence is so enormous, we could only capture her with a super wide-angle lens from the @Space_Station, 400 km directly above the eye. Get prepared on the East Coast, this is a no-kidding nightmare coming for you. #Horizons pic.twitter.com/ovZozsncfh— Alexander Gerst (@Astro_Alex) September 12, 2018
