(Before It's News)

Three major hurricanes are simultaneously making their way across the Pacific Ocean for the first time in history.

Hurricanes Ignacio, Kilo and Jimena were pictured together by NASA and astronauts from the International Space Station this weekend as they straddled the Pacific from Mexico to Hawaii.

It is the first time that three storms classed as Category 3 or higher, meaning they have the potential to cause major damage, have been pictured together at the same time.

For a time overnight Saturday and into Sunday, all of the storms reached Category 4, before Ignacio, which is sitting just to the west of Hawaii, weakened back to Category 3.
