Couple delivers newborn baby during Irma

As Hurricane Irma tore through Florida over the weekend, it isolated the many, many who stayed behind to courageous out the storm.

Everton midfielder Klassen: I still haven't talked to Rooney about Europa League

The result is a happy, healthy baby girl that was rushed to the hospital along with her mother as soon as road crews deemed it was safe enough to travel. For 45 minutes, first a dispatch supervisor, and then the doctor walked the couple through delivery, telling them to use a shoelace to tie off the placenta so that the baby didn't bleed. Giving birth in the middle of a hurricane, however, is truly something else. "When we got there, she was pretty much all the way out ... and the mother of the person in labor was actually pretty much delivering the baby - her own granddaughter - in the bathroom on the floor", Assistant Chief John Whalen with the Coral Springs Fire Department told CNN. "We made contact with the assistant medical director here".

As far as her baby's name, she had already decided on Destiny even before the storm was heading to Florida. Out of 41 rescue calls overnight could only respond to 3. The police shared in their official Twitter account a photo of the baby with the caption "Welcome to the world baby Nayiri Storm!". Glad our officers were able to assist the family safely from hospital to hotel. Now she's safe and healthy, and she has the ideal name.
