Three others later died, and "at least another dozen patients" are being treated at nearby Memorial Regional Hospital, according to Dr.

US President Donald Trump has visited Florida to meet people affected by Hurricane Irma and thank the emergency services.

Irma killed at least 36 people in Florida, Georgia and SC, according to officials.

"We're conducting a criminal investigation inside", Hollywood Police Chief Tom Sanchez said.

It barrelled into the Florida Keys island chain on Sunday, packing sustained winds of up to 130 miles per hour (215km per hour) before running up the Gulf coast of the state and dissipating.

We have five confirmed deaths at this facility.

A video obtained by CNN shows a naked lady sitting on the bed in the hallway in a Florida nursing home where eight elderly people died.

"This situation is unfathomable", he said.

Two elderly residents were found dead at the Rehabilitation Center of Hollywood Hills and three later died at a hospital, Broward County Mayor Barbara Sharief told reporters on Wednesday.

Temperatures reached the 90s Tuesday in Hollywood; by Wednesday the heat index was near 100 degrees and low temperatures were in the upper 70s.

There are some conflicting details about exactly how much power the building lost. There are 683 nursing homes in Florida with more than 84,000 beds, according to the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration, which licenses and regulates these facilities.

Pembroke Pines police spokeswoman Amanda Conwell told the Miami Herald that officers were at the scene.

In a separate statement, the Florida Department of Health's Mara Gambineri wrote "this facility is located across the street from one of Florida's largest hospitals, which never lost power and had fully operating facilities".

The storm's death toll grew to at least 33 people in Florida after a woman died of suspected carbon monoxide poisoning from a generator in Palm Beach County, the Palm Beach Post newspaper reported.

Elsewhere in South Florida, other alarms were sounded for older residents.

During their brief trip, President Trump and wife met with state and local leaders, visited a mobile home park damaged in the storm, handed out meals to Hurricane Irma survivors, before heading back to Washington.
