Astronaut Alex Gerst captured from ISS the 2018 Hurricane Florence which left at least 13 people dead and about a million without power on the East Coast.. The Atlantic hurricane season is an ongoing event normally from June to November every year in the Northern Hemisphere. On Sept. 5, Florence became the first major hurricane of the season. With the formation of Subtropical Storm Joyce on September 12, the season is the first since 1969 to see five subtropical storms, and the first since 2008 to feature four named storms active simultaneously (Florence, Helene, Isaac, and Joyce).
The following is the video of the Hurricane Florence captured from ISS.
This morning, a high definition camera outside of the @Space_Station captured a stark and sobering view of #HurricaneFlorence as it churned across the Atlantic with winds of 130 miles an hour. Take a closer look: https://t.co/IWZCzy2ZLV pic.twitter.com/9gIJ8PA8ng
