Gerst said Hurricane Florence was so enormous, with a width of more than 500 miles, that he "could only capture her with a super wide-angle lens."source Alexander Gerst/European Space Agency When the space station flew over the storm's menacing eye, Gerst took this photo". "Get prepared on the East Coast, this is a no-kidding nightmare coming for you".

The bone-chilling photos were posted to Twitter by German astronaut Alexander Gerst, of the European Space Agency, who commented on the importance of seeing "the big picture" and urged people to mind the official evacuation orders and "stay safe down there!"

"#HurricaneFlorence this morning with Cape Hatteras #NorthCarolina in the foreground", Arnold wrote this morning.

Here are some of the best images of Hurricane Florence by Gerst and Ricky Arnold, a fellow NASA astronaut living aboard the ISS. "The crew of @Space_Station is thinking of those who will be affected". Since reliable record-keeping began more than 150 years ago, North Carolina has only been hit by one Category 4 hurricane: Hazel, with 210 km/h winds in 1954. For the Carolinas, the NHC predicts a "life-threatening storm surge and rainfall".

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.

A new high-definition video and photos taken from the International Space Station show the size of scope of Hurricane Florence, a Category 4 storm heading toward landfall in the Southeast U.S. later this week.

NASA called the view - captured by cameras on the International Space Station - "stark and sobering".

And even from space, Hurricane Florence looks terrifying.
