Hurricane Florence EMERGENCY: NASA reveals terrifying photos of Category 4 storm

NASA has revealed a bone-chilling view from the International Space Station of Hurricane Florence just off the U.S. east coast in the Atantic Ocean.

"Watch out, America! Hurricane Florence is so enormous, we could only capture her with a super wide-angle lens from the Space Station", European astronaut Alexander Gerst said in a tweet. "Get prepared on the East Coast, this is a no-kidding nightmare coming for you".

"Ever stared down the gaping eye of a category 4 hurricane?" "It's chilling, even from space".

NASA astronaut Ricky Arnold also captured some incredible images of the storm from the windows of the space station.

Once Florence makes landfall, it'll be the first major Atlantic hurricane of the 2018 season to hit the mainland US.

It is mostly likely in to his southeastern North Carolina near the SC border, the National Hurricane Center in Miami said.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Goes-East weather-monitoring satellite used its lightning mapping technology for a video showing Florence, Tropical Storm Isaac and Hurricane Helene as they traveled across the Atlantic on Tuesday. He posted this image to Twitter on September 12, 2018.

The high resolution camera of the worldwide space station took the approach of a powerful hurricane on the East coast US in the morning, September 12.

This photo shows what it looks like deep inside the eye of Hurricane Florence, a place of relative calm for such storms.

Imaged in red in the photo above, these storms have "cloud tops as cold as or colder than minus 70 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 56.6 degrees Celsius)", notes the space agency.
