Residents Dead In Florida Nursing Home That Lost Power After Irma

Several nursing homes have been evacuated because of a lack of power or air conditioning, while utility workers raced help dozens of others still lacking electricity as of Thursday. The deceased patients have not been identified.

Gov. Rick Scott said officials were in contact with the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills over the past three days.

"What a price to pay", Johnson said of the eight people who died.

The causes of death are yet to be determined. The patient was brought to the hospital and firefighters were called back to the facility at 4 a.m.to transport another patient experiencing breathing problems.

Most of the patients treated for respiratory distress, dehydration, and heat-related issues, officials said, and about 12 of the 115 patients are in the emergency room.

"The Hollywood Police Department has been granted a search warrant for this property, and officers are on scene continuing their criminal investigation", said City of Hollywood Spokesperson Raelin Storey.

"Right now the building has been sealed off".

"I am absolutely heartbroken to learn of news reports of the deaths of multiple individuals in a nursing home in Broward Count, he said".

The 152-bed rehab center provides short-term rehabilitative services and long-term care, according to its website. "Our hearts go out to the families and friends of those who were affected", he added.

Administrators have so far not responded to STAT's calls or emails regarding the criminal investigation or prior inspection records. "If they find that anyone wasn't acting in the best interests of their patients, we will hold them accountable to the fullest extent of the law", the governor said.

"I just feel that they were neglected and [the facility] didn't take care of what they needed to take care of".

Power outages hit other Southeastern states as the storm moved north, including Georgia.
