Cameras outside the International Space Station show Hurricane Dorian Sept. 1 from 260 miles up at 12:16 p.m. EST as it churns over the northern Bahamas. The storm has the strongest winds in recorded history for the northwestern Bahamas. A dangerous Category 5 hurricane, Dorian has sustained winds of 180 miles an hour. The National Hurricane Center said Dorian is inflicting catastrophic damage to the Abacos and Grand Bahama Islands. Dorian is forecast to approach the east coast of Florida before taking a possible track up the southeastern U.S. seaboard later this week.
