Snow Causes Baby Boom In Vrgorac?

In February this year the small town of Vrgorac, located in the Dalmatian hinterland of Croatia, hit the headlines when stores in the town ran out of condoms after the worst snowfall in over 70 years crippled transport and isolated the town from deliveries for days. It seems now it has had a consequence with a “baby boom” recorded in the town this November, writes Vecernji list.

According to the Department for Statistics, the average monthly birth rate in Vrgorac is 6 babies (76 babies born in 2011), however, this November there were 15 babies born in the town, which has a population of over 6,000 people. The November “boom” means that more than 100 babies will be born this year in Vrgorac.
