“Massive snowstorm blanketing East Coast clearly visible from Space Station! Stay safe!” Tweeted the American astronaut.

Kelly along with fellow astronaut Mikhail Kornienko, from Russia, will conclude a historical year-long mission in March, which is double the time astronauts usually stay at the ISS, in order to study the human body resistance to staying in space.

This big snowstorm and strong winds paralyzed the east coast of the United States, hitting a total of 10 states, from Georgia to Connecticut, with snow falling as fast as 3 inches an hour in some places. The storm ravaged the east coast Friday evening into Saturday morning, and is so bad that snow is no longer the only concern now as officials fear flooding as well.

New York was the last state to declare an emergency, which was already alerted by the other states hit by the storm. Dangerous road conditions, due to the snow and strong winds, caused the death of at least ten people, six in North Carolina, two in Tennessee, one in Virginia and one in Kentucky.
