FL hospital welcomes 6 babies during Hurricane Dorian


JACKSONVILLE, FL AREA (CNN/WBTW) – Orange Park Medical Center near Jacksonville reported six births as Hurricane Dorian passed through the area, three on Tuesday and three on Wednesday.

The hospital released a statement saying hurricanes cause low barometric pressure, which can bring on labor.

The hospital also said anytime there’s a hurricane in the area, it makes sure their team is ready for an influx of patients.

Staff gave each baby a hurricane-themed onesie to mark their arrival.

Some read, “category five cutie” and “I was in the hurricane evacuation plan.”
