The International Space Station (ISS) has captured photos and video of a massive hurricane swirling in the Atlantic Ocean.

The video posted by ISS was captured on Monday by cameras outside the station, which is positioned 400 kilometres above the earth. A National Aeronautical and Space Administration (NASA) satellite also shared footage of the brewing category 4 storm that is headed towards the East Coast of the US, where it could potentially cause massive destruction, according to CNN.

With wind speeds of 168-201 kilometres per hour, it is expected to make landfall by late Thursday or early Friday.
