Baby Tadashi Dorian Davis came into the world during the storm so his parents named him after it.

DeLAND, Fla. - Hurricanes are usually known for their destruction, but for one family in DeLand, Florida, Hurricane Dorian brought a new life.

Kay Lisa McCloud and Anthony Davis welcomed their new baby boy into the world on September 2 at AdventHealth DeLand in DeLand, Florida, just as Hurricane Dorian set its sights on the Florida coast.

He arrived 12 days early and weighed in at 4 pounds and 8 ounces, according to the hospital.

"I was hoping he would wait until after the hurricane!" McCloud said in a statement. "This is a storm I definitely won't forget."

And so in honor of his untimely arrival during the storm, they decided to name him Tadashi Dorian Davis -- a storm they'll always remember.

The new family of three returned home Wednesday to a home that was undamaged, dry, and its electricity intact.
