August 31, 2011

Cameras mounted on the International Space Station captured new views of Hurricane Irene at 2:51 p.m. EDT on August 26, 2011 as the storm bore down on the east coast of the United States. Accompanied by narration from Expedition 28 Flight Engineer Mike Fossum of NASA, the video showed the massive system moving north at 14 miles an hour packing winds of 100 miles an hour some 300 miles south-southwest of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. Irene is expected to track to the northeast along the mid-Atlantic states, the metropolitan New York-New Jersey region and New England this weekend before heading out over the north Atlantic.
