Space Station's view of Hurricane Florence looks eerily apocalyptic
14 September 2018, 12:29 | Edward Lowe
One of the astronauts who took images of Hurricane Florence was Alexander Gerst, a German astronaut onboard the International Space Station.
The 500-mile-wide hurricane, which is barreling toward the USA east coast, is expected to make landfall on Thursday night, but then the storm's movement will slow to a crawl, meaning that some coastal areas will get as much as 24 hours of battering winds and rain.
With Hurricane Florence churning toward the East Coast, NASA released a stunning video and photos of the storm from space.
NASA itself uploaded a video of Hurricane Florence that was taken by the high-definition camera located outside the International Space Station.
In the first tweet, Alexander Gerst shared images of the Hurricane Florence's eye as the "no-kidding nightmare" storm is swirling above the Atlantic Ocean. "It's chilling, even from space", Gerst captioned the photos.
Florence is now a powerful Category 3 storm with winds of 125mph, and is expected to strengthen before making landfall along the Carolina coast later this week.
However, in the ISS astronaut's second post, he revealed an expansive view of the hurricane with its eye at several hundred kilometers off the US East Coast and its outer cloud bands already approaching Nort Carolina.
Hurricane Florence is at the doorstep of North and SC, and she's not going away anytime soon. Now hurricane "Florence" waiting in Washington, where he also declared a state of emergency. The hurricane is expected to reach 150 miles per hour before landfall Thursday night. Jasmine writes primarily in our LGBTTQQIAAP and Science section.
Hurricane Florence weakens, but still a strong flood threat
Duke Energy Corp expected between 25 percent and 75 percent of its 4 million customers would lose power in the Carolinas. More than 80,000 people were already without power as the storm approached, and more than 12,000 were in shelters.
Facebook builds AI to understand memes
Facebook employs flesh and blood moderators too, of course, but its fancy algorithms play a huge role in the experience. For better or worse, memes are a part of the online culture, and they are especially prevalent on social media sites.
