- Hurricane Florence is predicted to hit the US East Coast as a "major" storm of Category 4.
- Two other hurricanes— Isaac and Helene — have also formed in the Atlantic Ocean.
- The International Space Station recently flew over all three hurricanes and gave us a look at them from space.
Hurricane Florence is blowing sustained winds of up to 130 mph as it barrels toward the US East Coast as a Category 4 storm. But Hurricane Florence is not alone in the Atlantic Ocean.
The International Space Station (ISS) saw first-hand on Monday morning, hurricanes Isaac and Helene are trailing behind Florence, making for a trio of powerful storms.
Here is the look at 3 threatening hurricanes from the space.
Hurricane Florence has rapidly intensified into a Category 4 major hurricane southeast of Bermuda, reported by Weather Channel. It is likely to lash the East Coast later this week with life-threatening storm surge, destructive winds and massive inland rainfall flooding in one of the strongest strikes on this part of the East Coast on record.

Isaac is a Category 1 hurricane that’s blowing winds between 74-95 mph. The storm is targeting the southern Caribbean region and may bring a storm surge of up to 5 feet.
Helene is a Category 2 hurricane that’s blowing winds between 96-110 mph. The storm may turn northward in the coming days and bring a storm surge of up to 8 feet.
Here’s what the storms look like from a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration satellite:
