Editor’s note: this is a video still of Hurricane Irene. The video is too large for me to load, but please visit this link to watch it. It will be worth your time, very impressive — and frightening. www.nasa.gov/multimedia/videogallery/index.html?collectio…
From 230 miles above the Earth, cameras on the International Space Station captured new views of powerful Hurricane Irene as it churned over the Bahamas at 3:10 p.m. EDT on August 24, 2011. Irene is moving to the northwest as a Category 3 hurricane, packing winds of 120 miles an hour. Irene is expected to strengthen to a Category 4 storm as it heads toward the Outer Banks of North Carolina, the Eastern Seaboard and the middle Atlantic and New England states.
