According to the NHC advisory, Hurricane Florence is now located 575 miles (925 km) south-southeast of Bermuda and 1,230 miles (1,985 km) east-southeast of Cape Fear, North Carolina.

Astronaut Ricky Arnold, onboard the International Space Station, captured the hurricane churning in the Atlantic as it morphed into a monster storm.

In fact, Gerst wrote on Twitter that Hurricane Florence is "so enormous" it could only fit in the frame of a wide-angle camera. "The crew of @Space_Station is thinking of those who will be affected".

As millions of people in the Carolinas and Virginia prepare for what could be historic damage from Hurricane Florence, people in space are keeping an eye on it from above.

A spokeswoman for the University of Cincinnati Medical Center said three men and one woman were treated there for gunshot wounds. As he helped others take cover, Montoya said Newcomer was injured in the building's basement and ran to get help from medics.

The weather agency also warned "life-threatening freshwater flooding is likely from a prolonged and exceptionally heavy rainfall event".

The 500-mile-wide hurricane, which is barreling toward the United States east coast, is expected to make landfall on Thursday night, but then the storm's movement will slow to a crawl, meaning that some coastal areas will get as much as 24 hours of battering winds and rain.

At the same time, NASA is tracking Hurricane Florence with the Suomi NPP satellite, which passed over the eye of the storm in the early hours of September 12, at 2:12 a.m. EDT.

"Cameras outside the International Space Station captured dramatic views of rapidly strengthening Hurricane Florence at 8:10 a.m. EDT Sept. 10 as it moved in a westerly direction across the Atlantic, headed for a likely landfall along the eastern seaboard of the USA late Thursday or early Friday", NASA explains in a new blog post. "It's chilling, even from space", tweeted German astronaut Alexander Gerst, who is aboard the space station.
