The International Space Station captured impressive satellite footage of Hurricane Michael passing through the Gulf of Mexico on Tuesday, October 9.
Tropical Storm Michael became a hurricane in the northwestern Caribbean on the morning of Monday, October 8.
Forecasters said the storm would likely become a major hurricane before making landfall along the Florida Panhandle or Big Bend area on Wednesday. By Wednesday evening and into Thursday, Michael was forecast to be downgraded back to a tropical storm. It was then forecast to cross the southeastern United States and exit into the ocean off the Mid-Atlantic states early Friday. Credit: International Space Station via Storyful
