Hurricane Michael became a dangerous Category 4 hurricane in just a few days and will become the third major hurricane to make landfall in the continental US in the past 13 years when it hits the Florida Panhandle Wednesday afternoon. Several airlines have issued travel waivers, as this hurricane is packing winds up to 145mph and is one of the strongest storms on record.
NASA used cameras outside the International Space Station at an altitude of 255 miles to capture views of Hurricane Michael as the storm passed over the Gulf of Mexico Tuesday. The video shows the storm moving northwest at 12mph.
