We've all seen pictures of Hurricane Florence on the news but it's hard to appreciate just how massive it is when it's parked out over the ocean. But superimposing an image of Hurricane Florence over the state of Michigan shows just how immense the storm really is.

The storm, which has roughly 10 million people on alert, could cause wind surges over 100 miles per hour and dump 40 inches of rain up and down the east coast. Florence is predicted to make landfall late tonight (9/13) or early tomorrow morning.

The National Hurricane Center at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has multiple looks at Hurricane Florence and the entire country via satellite. We've taken an image of the hurricane, added color to show contrast in the clouds, then placed the image over Michigan to show its massive size. (Below)
