Hurricane Florence will be the first Category 4 storm to make a direct hit on North Carolina in more than 50 years and with sustained winds of 130mph, it's already pushing a storm surge and rain ahead of it.

Florence is set to reach the coastline of North and SC early Friday (Sept. 14), according to NASA and the National Hurricane Center (NHC), a division of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. "It's chilling, even from space", said Alexander Gerst, an astronaut with the European Space Agency who now lives on ISS, on Twitter.

The International Space Station captured photos and video of massive Hurricane Florence spiraling over the Atlantic, and those images captivated people on social media.

Hurricane Florence, now a Category 4 storm, is a 'no-kidding nightmare, ' warns German astronaut Alexander Gerst.

In fact, Gerst wrote on Twitter that Hurricane Florence is "so enormous" it could only fit in the frame of a wide-angle camera.
