Indeed, NASA called the view of Florence from the Space Station "stark" and "sobering".

In this September 12, 2018 photo provided by NASA, hurricane Florence churns over the Atlantic Ocean heading for the USA east coast as seen from the International Space Station. "It's chilling, even from space", said Alexander Gerst, an astronaut with the European Space Agency who now lives on ISS, on Twitter.

"The National Hurricane Middle forecasts extra strengthening for Florence earlier to it reaches the shoreline of North Carolina and SC early Friday, Sept. 14", NASA wrote within the description of the video. "It's chilling, even from space", Gerst captioned the photos.

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.
