Since I live in North Carolina, pretty much all everyone is talking about right now is Hurricane Irene and the date that it has with Wilmington, NC and the Outer Banks. Hopefully it will stay along the coast and not veer inland like Hurricane Fran did in 1996. Hopefully where I’m at, we’ll get a lot of rain and a little bit of heavy wind and that’s it.
Aboard the ISS, they’re high and dry, with the best vantage point of Irene, showing what an absolutely massive storm it is. The image above was taken by astronaut Ron Garan as Irene swept through the Caribbean.
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.
