Hurricane Dorian NASA live: Jawdropping video shows monstrous eye of storm | World | News

Live footage from NASA shows an aerial view of Hurricane Dorian, filmed 250 miles above Earth from the International Space Station. The incredible NASA video shows the storm swirling above Earth, with the eye of the hurricane also visible. NASA shared the live stream on its Twitter, posting: “LIVE NOW: Tune in as the @Space_Station flies over #HurricaneDorian2019 with a view of the storm from the orbiting laboratory 250 miles above the Earth.”


Earlier, NASA also tweeted: “Watch starting at 12:18pm ET to see views of rapidly intensifying #HurricaneDorian2019 from @Space_Station as it churns over the Atlantic.

“The storm is moving to the northwest & is forecast by @NWS to approach Florida’s east coast as a major hurricane”.

Meanwhile, the National Hurricane Center recently warned: “Tropical-storm-force winds from #Dorian could begin in parts of Florida *as early as* Sunday morning.

“Now is the time to think about what kinds of preparations you might need to make and listen to advice from your local emergency officials.”

In its latest advisory, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) said: “Residents should begin to execute their hurricane plans and listen to advice given by local emergency officials.

“The dangerous hurricane is forecast to make landfall in Florida late this weekend.

“There is an increasing likelihood of a prolonged period of hazardous weather conditions that could last for a couple of days in parts of Florida early next week.

NOAA added: “The risk of life-threatening storm surge along portions of the Florida east coast has increased, although it is too soon to determine where the highest storm surge will occur.

Dorian has already wreaked havoc on the British and US Virgin Islands, as hurricane-force winds downed trees and power lines.

AccuWeather Hurricane Expert Dan Kottlowski of the storm’s rapid intensification: “Dorian shifted to the north and travelled over warm open waters, allowing it to undergo rapid strengthening.”

The exact path of the dangerous hurricane is unknown, as just a slight variation in its track could impact different states.

Accuweather Senior Meteorologist Adam Douty explained: “A very small fluctuation in the overall weather pattern will have a large influence in where Dorian ultimately tracks and how it impacts the continental US.

“If Dorian does slow and turns to the north, impacts in the Carolinas would be much more significant while Florida would be spared from major damage.”

Satellite images are showing the churning winds of hurricane Dorian, and the ominously black eye of the storm.

The Coast Guard Captain of the Port has warned to expect hurricane-force winds, setting port condition Whiskey for Port Canaveral in Florida.
