Caption: Hurricane Frances in the Atlantic Ocean, seen from the International Space Station (solar panels at right) at 12:50 GMT on 28 August 2004. Hurricane Frances passed over the islands of the Bahamas a few days later, reaching the US state of Florida from 3-5 September 2004. By that time it had grown in size to cover the southern half of the state. Although the winds had dropped in speed, it still caused immense damage and flooding, with over 2 million people evacuating their homes. Hurricanes are enormous rotating storm systems that form over tropical seas. They can be hundreds of kilometres wide. The International Space Station orbits some 360 kilometres above the Earth.
