Hurricane Dorian in Action in these Gifs NASA and NOAA Took from Space

Updated Sept. 1, 9:40 am ET (1340 GMT): Hurricane Dorian is now a monster Category 5 storm as it nears the Abacos Islands and Grand Bahama Island.

As the storm swells closer to land, satellites operated by NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) continue to track its movement and progress. You can see some of the images from those satellite observations below, which have been shared on social media.
