Florence's sluggish pace promises to prolong storm misery

Clip: 09/14/2018 | 6m 17s

The eye of Hurricane Florence made landfall Friday morning and was downgraded to a tropical storm by the late afternoon. But the storm kept dumping rain, uprooting trees, flooding streets and battering towns with strong winds as it moved slowly inland. Most houses and buildings withstood the winds, but a woman and baby were killed when a tree was blown down on their home. P.J. Tobia reports.
