Hurricane Florence is the biggest threat in the Atlantic right now, but it’s hardly the only storm. The tropics have gone wild, with three hurricanes spinning at the same time, as you can see for yourself in satellite imagery captured as the sun rose on the Atlantic Monday morning.

In addition to rapidly-strengthening Florence (which just hit Category 3 status), Helene and Isaac became hurricanes on Sunday. More than 2,000 miles separates the three hurricanes so the only way to view them all together is from space.

This picture is kind of terrifying!

Luckily, there’s a way to do that thanks to GOES 16.

The National Ocean and Atmospheric Administration released imagery on Monday showing the eye of hurricane Florence. The swirl of clouds around the hurricane’s center, which is starting to clear out, are a sign it’s strengthening as expected.

Now, may I offer you one last view courtesy of astronauts? The International Space Station passed over the Atlantic on Monday morning, and here are absolute amazing images of Florence:

This is the eleventh time on record that three hurricanes have been active at the same time in the Atlantic. The most recent time was last year, when Irma, Jose and Maria all reached hurricane status at the same time. The scars of Irma and Maria are still clear in the Caribbean and Florida.

The forecasts for Florence and Isaac are disconcerting as well, making it hard to really savor the views from space.

While Helene is likely to steer off into the central Atlantic and poses no immediate risk to land, Florence is rapidly strengthening and is likely to reach the Southeast or Mid-Atlantic by Thursday as a very strong hurricane with a major storm surge risk. It’s quite possible it could stall out over land and dump copious rainfall inland, creating the potential for historic flooding.

Meanwhile, Isaac is plowing toward the Caribbean and the Lesser Antilles. While it’s a small hurricane, it could still bring rain and storm surge to a number of islands from Barbados to Antigua. Puerto Rico is also within the storm’s forecast cone, though there’s a lot that can happen between now and this weekend to change its exact track. Still, it’s a storm that bears watching.

  1. “The tropics have gone wild.” No, they havent. It would beoove you to learn about weather manipulation. There is no longer any natural weather and I’ll debate you or anyone else on this subject at any time. Wise up.

  2. Temperature in Tuscaloosa, Alabama was 156 degree fahrenheit! Just now, it becomes 83 degree on Intellicast Radar. Reptilian Secret Underground Base in Tuscaloosa had been burnt down? That was why such a high temperature appeared?

  3. Hurricane Florence is not a really hurricane. This is a hurricane bomb, a weather weapon! What bizarre about Florence is that Florence will stay around Carolina until it dies. It will not move on toward North like some other hurricanes do. This is really wired. Around North and South Carolina, there should be many military bases and Reptilian Secret Underground Bases. Yes, Florence is coming to clean up those bases. Yes, we are living in the End of the Time.

  4. Sunspot Observatory closed due to security issue

    “The Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy who manages the facility is addressing a security issue at this time,” Lifson said. “We have decided to vacate the facility at this time as precautionary measure. It was our decision to evacuate the facility.”

    Observatory = Reptilian Base

    Only Reptilians and hybrids are working on their base, called observatory. They have received some kind of threat or even attacks from Galactic Federation of Light. GFL are here to clean up all the Reptilian bases and facilities on the Earth. Salusa, a commander of GFL told me in 2011 “We will start cleaning up all Reptilian bases including their Secret Underground Bases.”

    • I observed some storms lingered for a couple of days around that time in that area on Intellicast Radar. There was some signs of hails and damaging wind. Galactic Federation of Light ship disguising as a cloud or storm might have visited that observatory facility in order to clean up Reptilian base. What those reptilians working in that facility was just to evacuate.

  5. Solar storm that could damage power supplies, knock out satellite TVs and trigger auroras is set to slam the Earth’s atmosphere TODAY

    Fast moving solar winds are created where the star’s magnetic field opens up
    Charged, magnetic particles an interfere with machinery in Earth’s orbit
    They can also threaten airlines by disturbing Earth’s magnetic field
