Seeing Hurricane Matthew From Space Makes You Realize How Massive It Is

With wind speeds recorded at over 140 miles per hour, meteorologists and disaster relief organizations are beginning to look at the potential destructive power of Hurricane Matthew as a forgone conclusion. The massive Category 4 hurricane was set to make landfall over Haiti early on October 4th, but has since shifted north and will likely strike the Bahamas and the eastern seaboard of the United States. This bird’s eye view of the titanic storm was captured by the International Space Station, which orbits the Earth nearly 250 miles up, which should give you a sense of just how massive this storm really is.
