"Watch out, America! #HurricaneFlorence is so enormous, we could only capture her with a super wide-angle lens", German astronaut Alexander Gerst tweeted this morning, along with the photos to prove it. "Get prepared on the East Coast, this is a no-kidding nightmare coming for you".

The National Hurricane Center warned Monday there could be a "life-threatening" storm surge, rip currents, and freshwater flooding along the coasts of South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia, plus damaging hurricane-force winds at the coasts and further inland.

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

"Ever stared down the gaping eye of a category four hurricane?"

This has led to the iPhone XR being variously described as "cheap", " entry-level ", or the " budget " iPhone for this year. If you want a 2018 iPhone (and not the iPhone 8, 8 Plus or iPhone 7), you can keep a little more money in the bank.

Spanish Astronaut, Alexander Gerst was part of an global crew that took these incredible photos of Florence from the worldwide Space Station and they are intense, to say the least.

Another photo (embedded below) was snapped on September 10 by astronaut Ricky Arnold while aboard the International Space Station.

The images, captured from249 miles above the storm, captured Florence as it draws close to North Carolina's coast. The space agency described the footage as "a stark and sobering" view of the storm, as it moved with wind speeds of 130 miles per hour. The photo shows the churning storm, which according to Arnold, was later joined by Hurricane Isaac and Hurricane Helene.
