New video shows conditions inside sweltering Florida nursing home where 8 died

Eight people have died at a Florida nursing home after Hurricane Irma knocked out the air conditioning and they were left "excessively hot".

More than 100 people were evacuated from a Florida nursing home Wednesday after six people were reported dead at the Hollywood facility, whose residents were suffering from intense heat caused by a lack of electricity after deadly Hurricane Irma swept through.

Officials confirmed eight people have died, but it remains unknown whether the deaths are related to the heat.

Hamilton from Jon Hamilton reported that, "The suspicion is that these deaths should not have occurred".

For Trump, the visit to Fort Myers and Naples along Florida's battered southwestern coast offered him the chance to see how people were coping and how the Federal Emergency Management Agency was responding.

About 150 of the Florida's almost 700 nursing facilities were without electricity as of Wednesday morning, according to the Florida Health Care Association, which represents a lot of them.

After whipping by the disaster of storm-force tropical winds and Hurricane Irma, many locations in the South Florida including the nursing home have been residing there without a power supply.

Across Florida, 4.4 million homes and businesses still have no power.

Florida's healthcare agency ordered the nursing home on Thursday to be suspended from the state Medicaid program.

After slipping as low as 109.57 yen in Asian trading, the dollar rebounded, rising 0.8 percent to 111.07 yen. The missile posed no threat to North America or Guam, Manning told reporters during a briefing this morning.

"We have been very, very fast and we had to be", Trump said at an airport hangar where he was joined by Vice President Mike Pence, Gov. Rick Scott and other leaders.

"A day you can survive, two days ok", said Dan Nelson, chief operating officer for Cape Coral Shores assisted living, adding that after that "things like what happened over in Hollywood unfortunately could happen somewhere else".

A kitchen worker Jean Lindor told the Miami Herald that the air conditioning system was not working following the storm on Sunday.

Officials initially said as many as 158 people had been moved from the center; on Thursday, police clarified that 145 patients were sent to Memorial Regional Hospital - 141 from the center and four from an adjoining facility.

Jack Michel, the sole person listed on the nursing home's corporate registration in Florida, appears to have been accused of fraudulent activity in the past. Staff also "continually checked on residents' well-being" to ensure they were "hydrated and as comfortable as possible", Carballo said. Police say three patients died at the facility and three at a hospital.

He said the building has been sealed off for the criminal investigation but didn't give further details.

The number of deaths blamed on Irma in Florida climbed to 13 with the carbon monoxide deaths, in addition to four in SC and two in Georgia.

"Our centers' first priority is always the safety and well-being of every resident in their care and they are doing everything in their power to meet their immediate and ongoing needs", wrote the association's executive director, Kristen Knapp.

Among the state's almost 700 nursing facilities, about 150 lacked power as of Wednesday morning, said the Florida Health Care Association, which represents most of the homes.
