Jacksonville, FL - One Clay County resident says he remembers Tropical Storm Frances like it was just yesterday.
"It was in the afternoon. It started getting bad. That's when I thought about getting some supplies."
Jose Rentas says he was out at a local store in the afternoon before the weather turned bad. He was concerned about losing power at his home. He quickly lost sight of supplies when he received a phonecall from his wife, who was six months pregnant.
"She started having pain and all that so we had to rush her to the hospital," said Rentas.
Little did they know, the family doctor who was supposed to deliver the baby would be delayed because of bad weather.
"She couldn't make it because one of her trees fell in the middle of her driveway. But unfortunately, they couldn't hold the baby at that moment. They said she was going to have the baby early."
His wife, through all the stress and bad weather delivered their son prematurely at 26 weeks weighing two pounds. Rentas's son is turning ten this September and he says he jokes with his wife all the time, if he'd been a girl, they would have named her Frances, after the storm.
