Florida is now bracing itself for a ‘direct hit’ from the deadly category 3 storm which is expected to strengthen to category 4 as it approaches the southern part of the state.
It’s also expected to pass close to or over NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, near Melbourne Beach which, ironically, is home to America’s next-generation weather satellite – the GOES-R.
