ORANGE PARK, Fla. (WTNH) — Doctors at a Florida hospital say Hurricane Dorian responsible for an increase in births
Orange Park Medical Center, near Jacksonville, reported six births as 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, CNN reports.
Officials say anytime there’s a hurricane in the area, they make sure their team is ready for an influx of patients.
Each baby was given a hurricane-themed onesie to mark their arrival.
Among the designs were “I was in the hurricane evacuation plan” and “category 5 cutie.”
