'Hurricane Baby' Born At University Hospital

Aug 31, 2017

A pregnant Rockport woman who had to flee Hurricane Harvey never imagined she’s be delivering her child in San Antonio.

A University Health System nurse working one of the shelters where Shanika Jones was staying realized she was going into labor.

That’s when she brought her to University Hospital where Zakaiya Grace was born Wednesday evening.

It’s the first of what may be many hurricane babies born in cities that are not their home, as expectant mothers fled the storm.
