As Hurricane Florence continues barreling in direction of the Carolinas, NASA has posted a outstanding video of the storm with winds drawing reach 130 miles per hour.

Additionally, European Space Agency astronaut Alexander Gerst took to Twitter on Wednesday to share photos of the hurricane from space, while stressing the severity of the storm.

A high-definition camera outside the International Space Station captured video Tuesday. Get prepared on the East Coast, this is a no-kidding nightmare coming for you.

In another image tweeted by Gerst on Wednesday (one of which was NASA's "Image of the Day") the seriousness of the storm can be clearly seen.

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.
