The International Space Station passed over two major Atlantic hurricanes on Friday, Sept. 8.

As far as Hurricane Irma is concerned, thanks to the advances made in science and technology, the authorities in the region managed to evacuate people in time that in turn accounts for the relatively-low death toll, despite the ferocity of the storm. It is now passing through the southeastern Bahamas, and by Sunday morning, it should be making its way toward southern Florida.

Hurricane Irma made multiple landfalls over the past week, devastating islands in the Caribbean before reaching Florida on Sunday morning.

The eye of Hurricane Irma, roughly 30 miles wide, is shown below on the morning of September 5, with each frame separated by one minute or less.

"Maximum sustained winds are near 85 miles per hour with higher gusts".

Models show a wide range of possibilities, all the way from SC to Newfoundland, or even out to sea.
