PARKERSBURG (AP) -

A Parkersburg hospital is reporting a baby boom nine months after a windstorm left thousands of residents without electricity for several days.

Camden Clark Medical Center spokesman Tim Brunicardi said the hospital has delivered 74 babies during the past two weeks.

During the same period in 2012, there were 61 deliveries. In 2011, the hospital delivered 52 babies.

Brunicard told The Parkersburg News and Sentinel that there's no way to determine whether the increase in births is related to the storm. But he said births typically increase following storms and power outages.

Linda Moncrief's granddaughter gave birth to a baby boy last week. She says nurses at the hospital were calling newborns "derecho babies."
