   OMINOUS Hurricane Florence is set to blast the US east coast

Once Florence makes landfall, it'll be the first major Atlantic hurricane of the 2018 season to hit the mainland US.

Arnold and his crewmates have seen two other big storms brewing in the Atlantic Ocean, including Hurricane Helene and Tropical Storm Isaac.

The hurricane is expected to reach the coastlines of North Carolina and SC on Friday morning, with experts estimating that it will continue to grow in strength. It is estimated that the wind speed in the eye of the hurricane reaches 200 km/h.

New video from NASA shows Hurricane Florence on its course toward the United States on Monday, September 10, as the National Weather Service upgraded the rapidly strengthening hurricane to Category 4 status.

In fact, Gerst wrote on Twitter that Hurricane Florence is "so enormous" it could only fit in the frame of a wide-angle camera. "Get prepared on the East Coast, this is a no-kidding nightmare coming for you". "NASA research has found that cloud top temperatures that cold have the capability to generate heavy rainfall", the space agency says.

NASA also recorded what it called "stark and sobering" video footage of Florence from the space station on Wednesday.
