Hurricane Florence is shaping up to be a terrible storm, and it does not look any better when you look at it from space.

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

The governors of those three states have declared states of emergency, CNN reports, and North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper warned residents to prepare for a period of time without power.

The massive power behind Hurricane Florence resulted in incredible, and downright terrifying, images and videos taken from space.

Additionally, European Space Agency astronaut Alexander Gerst took to Twitter on Wednesday to share photos of the hurricane from space, while stressing the severity of the storm. The hurricane, which has been upgraded to a category 4, is expected to pummel the coastlines of SC and North Carolina in the coming days, with the National Hurricane Center warning of a "life-threatening storm surge" as well as catastrophic flash flooding.

The US National Hurricane Center said Hurricane Florence maximum sustained winds were 115 miles per hour as any other regular Category 3 storm, on Wednesday at 8 PM EDT.

The National Hurricane Center, a division of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, said that Hurricane Florence may lead to a life-threatening storm surge and rainfall.

Those warily staring at Florence grasp in contrast it to Hurricanes Fran and Hugo, which pummeled North Carolina and SC, respectively, more than two decades ago. However, these two are predicted to not cause as much damage as expected of Hurricane Florence.
