The massive power behind Hurricane Florence resulted in fantastic, and downright terrifying, images and videos taken from space.
European Space Agency astronaut Alexander Gerst tweeted pictures taken 249 miles above the eye of the storm.
Indeed, NASA called the view of Florence from the Space Station "stark" and "sobering".
