As Hurricane Dorian pummels the Caribbean and the U.S. East Coast, NASA satellites and space station astronauts are keeping an eye on the epic storm from space.
In the gallery below, you can see how Dorian strengthened from a tropical storm into a dangerous Category 5 hurricane (opens in new tab) during the last week of August. The hurricane has since been downgraded to a Category 2 storm (as of Sept. 3), and it's currently crawling northward near the east coast of Florida. It's not yet clear where the storm will make landfall (opens in new tab) next, but it appears to be heading for North and South Carolina.
