WATCH: Space Station's view of Hurricane Florence looks eerily apocalyptic

NASA itself uploaded a video of Hurricane Florence that was taken by the high-definition camera located outside the International Space Station.

Watching the scene unfold from space, German Alexander Gerst, an astronaut on board the ISS, tweeted photos of the enormous storm.

Describing Hurricane Florence as "a no-kidding nightmare" is certainly appropriate, with Gerst warning Americans on the East Coast to prepare for the storm's arrival.

On Monday morning, the International Space Station also captured video of Florence with winds of 115 miles an hour.

Gerst went on to add that seeing the hurricane is chilling, even from space, and shared an additional of three pictures that speak for themselves.

Hurricane Florence has strengthened to a category 4 storm, and it's on a path to potentially cause serious damage in North and SC.

On Wednesday, at the moment of the US National Hurricane Center announcement, Hurricane Florence was at about 335 miles (540 kilometers) away off the US East Coast, more specifically, right at the southeast of Wilmington, North Carolina.

Hurricane Florence is now bearing down on the Southeast, specifically the Carolina's, and the slow-moving hurricane has everyone anxious with the amount of rain it could dump, with a potential to cause massive flooding-not to mention the damage from 80 mile-per-hour winds expected later today.
