LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — NASA is sharing images of Hurricane Dorian from space.

On Sunday, the International Space Station tweeted a video of the Category 5 hurricane as it churned over the Bahamas.

With gusts over 220 mph, Dorian has become "the strongest hurricane in modern records for the northwestern Bahamas," the National Hurricane Center said.

The Nevada Task Force One is in Florida to help anyone who needs it. The team left Las Vegas on Friday. Since then, Dorian's forecast track has shifted east, making a landfall in Florida less likely but not out of the question.
