    Default Hurricane Florence

    Alexander Gerst, a German astronaut orbiting Earth from 250 miles (402 kilometres) up, has a warning for humans on the planet below him.

    "Watch out, America!" Gerst, who joined the crew of the International Space Station in June, said Wednesday in a tweet featuring pictures he took of Hurricane Florence.

    "This is a no-kidding nightmare coming for you," he added.

    Yeah I saw this on Twitter yesterday. The images look like something from a sci-fi film.

    I see that Florence has now been downgraded from category four to category two, which will be of some relief to many who were expecting the worst, but still it looks likely to cause some major damage and flooding.

    The trouble is that they call wolf all the time about how bad its going to be, quite often it peters out

    The issue isn't the wind, it's the fact that it's going to arrive on the coast and barely move, so it's just going to dump a load of rain

    Whatever happens, Trump will downplay it and claim that the media coverage is "fake news".
