'Strange and amazing' images of Hurricane Beryl from space

A NASA astronaut captured stunning images of the devastating Hurricane Beryl from the International Space Station, about 400 km above the Earth's surface.

Matthew Dominick posted the images he took as the space station traveled more than 200 miles over the Caribbean on July 1.

Hurricane Beryl has killed at least six people and is expected to bring life-threatening winds and storm surges to Jamaica.

Dominic turned his lens toward the ground on Monday as Beryl first made landfall in the Caribbean. At the time, the hurricane was still a Category 4 storm with winds of 130 mph (209 km/h).

The images show the storm swirling around the Atlantic Ocean, with an eye at the centre, SWNS reported.

NASA studies hurricanes from space with images like the one the astronaut took, as "the vantage point helps scientists understand how climate change affects hurricanes and how communities can better prepare."

The ferocious Category 5 storm has already caused extensive damage after winds of 165 mph (265 km/h) battered parts of the Caribbean.

"There is a significant risk in the Caribbean, especially in the mountainous islands. This could cause life-threatening flash flooding and mudslides in some of these areas," said National Hurricane Center Director Michael Brennan.

A new model also predicts that Hurricane Beryl will hit six U.S. states. Previous data suggests the hurricane could pass through Texas by the weekend.
