‘Hurricane boy’ celebrates 25th birthday in Hawaii

September 13, 2017

HONOLULU (AP) — It was a wicked day in Hawaii 25 years ago when Minoneti Latu went into labor with her son.

Rain, wind and chaos hit Kauai as Latu’s driver swerved around electric poles, wires and detours on their way to the hospital. There was no power in her area of the building when she gave birth to her son, who was named Feleti-Iniki Jeffrey Latu as a tribute to the hurricane that made his birth one to remember.

It’s no surprise the family calls him “hurricane boy.”

KITV-TV reports (http://bit.ly/2h2dt90 ) that Feleti-Iniki Jeffrey Latu turned 25 years old on Tuesday.

The Latu’s say his name symbolizes strength. He is currently a student at BYU Hawaii.
