A storm's a-brewin' - and NASA has it on tape.

The massive storm is threatening the East Coast of the U.S. with an expected landfall early Friday.

Outer bands from the hurricane were lashing land on Thursday, at least a full day before the National Hurricane Center expects the slow-moving storm's eye to blow ashore around the North Carolina-South Carolina line.

Astronauts on the ISS captured, from the Earth's orbit, the Hurricane Florence as its ravaging the Atlantic Ocean as its heading towards the US Eastern Coast. The size of the storm and its expected staying power will make life tough for anyone who decides to try to ride it out (which is not a good idea).
