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.

Cameras outside the space station captured several views of the storm at 8:10 a.m. Monday, according to NASA.

"Ever stared down the gaping eye of a category 4 hurricane?" he said.

And even from space, Hurricane Florence looks terrifying.

Florence is expected to make landfall in the Carolinas early Friday, bringing with it 20-30 inches of rain to North Carolina, and almost 40 inches to SC, according to the National Hurricane Center.

The ISS was flying 255 miles (410 kilometers) above the storm when it got the footage, which NASA describes as "dramatic".

The photos in Gerst's post capture Florence mid-churn, winds up to 130 miles per hour whipping around the storm's eye.

The report also suggests that the native resolution of the next generation Apple Watch will be 384×480 pixels on the 42mm model. It is believed that this year's iPhones will showcase a Triple-Lens Camera, and of course, following the iPhone X's path.

Hurricane Florence, a powerful Category 4 storm, could stall upon reaching the Carolina coast and make a slight shift south toward SC once it makes landfall, becoming "a major flooding event", according to Fox News Senior Meteorologist Janice Dean.

NASA called the view - captured by cameras on the International Space Station - "stark and sobering". SC and North Carolina are evacuating people living in vulnerable areas along the coast.

At 1:55 a.m. EDT (0555 UTC) on September 10, from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer or MODIS instrument aboard NASA's Aqua satellite revealed strongest storms in Florence were in the northern and western part of the eyewall.
