Couple welcomes new baby after escaping Florence's path

A North Carolina couple has a lot to be thankful for this weekend.

They welcomed a baby girl days after escaping Tropical Storm Florence's path.

The couple drove more than eight hours to stay with family in Pennsylvania one day before the mother's due date.

The baby, who was named Matilda, made her debut just as Florence made landfall.
