WATCH Virginia governor explains preparations made for Hurricane Florence

HURRICANE Florence bears down on the USA east coast, Nasa's satellites are monitoring its strength and speed, as well as recording some incredible images of the massive storm.

European Space Agency astronaut Alexander Gerst snapped some photos of his own to share on Twitter on Wednesday.

Hurricane Florence is blowing sustained winds of up to 130 miles per hour as it barrels toward the US East Coast as a Category 4 storm.

National Aeronautics and space administration (NASA) revealed the extent of hurricane Florence, which is close to the coast of the United States. That also means that colossal weather systems like Hurricane Florence are easy to observe as the spacecraft cruises along. Residents in states from Virginia to Georgia - especially those who live in flood-prone areas or on the coast - must decide whether to stay or go.

Astronaut Alexander Gerst provides a view straight down into the eye of Hurricane Florence, headed toward the U.S. Southeast as of September 12, 2018.

Quick on Florence's heels, two more powerful storms are crossing the Atlantic, tracked by NASA satellites: Tropical Storm Isaac and Hurricane Helene. The crew of Expedition 56 even managed to capture a few dramatic photos of the monster storm raging over the Atlantic Ocean, which they posted on social media to warn people about the devastating force of the hurricane.

Images are coming out from the International Space Station that reflect the monstrous size of Florence expected to hammer the Carolinas. This picture shows Hurricane Florence on Monday.
