Extraordinary photos captured from the International Home Place reward Storm Florence barreling toward the U.S. East Fly.

The massive storm was captured on a high-definition camera from the International Space Station as it barreled across the Atlantic Ocean with its 130 miles per hour winds. "Get prepared on the East Coast, this is a no-kidding nightmare coming for you".

"Ever stared down the gaping glance of a category Four typhoon?"

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has released a "mesmerising loop" showing Hurricane Florence from space.

European Space Agency astronaut Alexander Gerst snapped some photos of his own to share on Twitter on Wednesday.

The storm is on track to hit the Carolinas and mid-Atlantic region as early as Thursday, according to the hurricane centre.

Meteorologists from the National Hurricane Center are expecting the storm to intensify even further before making landfall along the North Carolina coast.

NASA astronaut Ricky Arnold shared views from the International Space Station, which orbits around 250 miles (400 kilometers) above the Earth.

Hurricane Florence is expected to make landfall on Thursday and will most heavily impact the coastal states of South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia.

"The crew of @Space_Station is thinking of those who will be affected", Arnold said in a tweet.

The element will lead to a "life-threatening storm surges, exceptionally strong heavy rains and destructive winds", they say. SC and North Carolina are evacuating people living in vulnerable areas along the coast.

Those warily watching Florence have compared it to Hurricanes Fran and Hugo, which pummeled North Carolina and SC, respectively, more than two decades ago.
