A high definition camera outside of the International Space Station captures the massive size of Hurricane Florence over the Atlantic Ocean.
Paul Flaherty, meteorologist and flight director for the hurricane hunter aircraft reported Hurricane Florence had eroded somewhat on the south side of the storm.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration flew one of their aircraft into the eye of Hurricane Florence to collect valuable weather data.
As Hurricane Florence approaches the East Coast of the United States, the governors of Virginia, North and South Carolina have issued mandatory evacuation orders affecting hundreds of thousands of residents in coastal areas.

Here is the latest satellite image of Florence. Most likely arrival time of tropical storm force winds in our area is late morning/early afternoon tomorrow. Today is the last day to safely travel out of the area. Please heed any evacuation orders and we will continue to monitor. pic.twitter.com/tKs4dmYWEE

Watch out, America! #HurricaneFlorence is so enormous, we could only capture her with a super wide-angle lens from the @Space_Station, 400 km directly above the eye. Get prepared on the East Coast, this is a no-kidding nightmare coming for you. #Horizons pic.twitter.com/ovZozsncfh
