Watch the view from space as massive Hurricane Matthew churns in the Caribbean sea before making landfall tonight.

NOAA issued a Hurricane Watch for Jamaica, Haiti, several Cuban provinces and the Southeastern Bahamas, as those areas brace for flood rains, storm surges, mudslides and high winds. Matthew is expected to approach southwestern Haiti tonight–where 40 inches of rainfall is expected according to NOAA and NASA reports–then reach western Haiti and eastern Cuba tomorrow morning. The storm’s slow track makes it particularly dangerous–although winds are sustained at 140 mph, its lumbering track north is moving at only 6 mph.

The International Space Station crosses over Matthew at 4:10 p.m. ET today. Live-stream the flyover here:
