Hurricane Florence is shaping up to be a awful storm, and it does not look any better when you look at it from space.

As Hurricane Florence barrels toward the East Coast, maybe nothing can portend the storm's wrath quite like photos taken from space.

As Hurricane Florence continues barreling in direction of the Carolinas, NASA has posted a outstanding video of the storm with winds drawing reach 130 miles per hour.

The images, captured from249 miles above the storm, captured Florence as it draws close to North Carolina's coast.

The massive power behind Hurricane Florence resulted in fantastic, and downright terrifying, images and videos taken from space. Outer bands from the hurricane were lashing land on Thursday, at least a full day before the National Hurricane Center expects the slow-moving storm's eye to blow ashore around the North Carolina-South Carolina line. "Get prepared on the East Coast, this is a no-kidding nightmare coming for you", said ESA's astronaut Alexander Gerst on Twitter.


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

Hurricane Florence is now bearing down on the Southeast, specifically the Carolina's, and the slow-moving hurricane has everyone anxious with the amount of rain it could dump, with a potential to cause massive flooding-not to mention the damage from 80 mile-per-hour winds expected later today.

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

Hurricane Florence has reportedly been causing 80-plus feet waves.
