Hurricane Irma Newborn Given a Very Special Baby Name
As Hurricane Irma continues to knock its way through the Southeast, the huge storm is certainly a scary time for moms-to-be.
Now, one Florida mom can breathe a sigh of relief after safely traveling from her Key West home to Miami for the delivery of her baby girl. After traveling 150+ miles, Kara Kesling went into labor at Baptist Hospital in Kendall, Thursday. The mom and baby remained there until Saturday, when the Miami-Dade Police helped bring the duo to a nearby hotel.

Having escaped the then Category 5 hurricane pummeling towards her home, Kesling fittingly named her newborn "Nayiri Storm." "Welcome to the world baby Nayiri Storm!" the Miami-Dade Police Department shared on their social media accounts. "Glad our officers were able to assist the family safely from hospital to hotel. #PerfectName"
The adorable newborn, securely wrapped in a white blanket, will certainly have quite the story to tell all of her friends when she grows up.
