4 Astounding Photos of Hurricane Patricia From Space


As Hurricane Patricia barreled ashore on the Southwest coast of Mexico yesterday, NASA astronaut Scott Kelly tweeted several photos from the International Space Station.

A state of emergency was declared over large sections along Mexico’s Pacific coast Friday as Hurricane Patricia was listed as a Category 5 and described as the “strongest storm ever measured on the planet.”

Kelly’s images show the size and severity of Patricia, which made landfall in Mexico Friday evening with winds reaching 165 mph.
