Mesmerizing time-lapse shows Hurricane Patricia from ISS (VIDEO)

The video published by NASA on Sunday captured the Category 5 storm – the highest possible rating – as the ISS was passing over Mexico on Friday.

The hurricane, which unleashed record-breaking 322 km/h winds and severe flooding in the area, prompted the evacuation of around 15,000 tourists from Mexican resorts. There were no deaths reported as a result of the mega-storm, although a few thousand homes were damaged, according to Mexican officials.
