WHAT'S HAPPENING: President Trump visits, elderly in peril

Police said they got a call about patients in distress at the Hollywood Hills site at about 4 a.m. Wednesday.

U.S. President Donald Trump's homeland security adviser, Tom Bossert, said the federal government is working to help Florida Keys residents secure shelter through rental assistance, hotels or pre-manufactured housing.

How hot did it get inside the nursing home?

Reports differed as to whether the facility had air conditioning after Irma slammed into the area late Saturday. "These kind of facilities should be regulated with a strong, tight rein. and it hasn't happened".

In fact, Gambineri said, the nursing home had made 17 reports to the state through an online database beginning on September 7. Their "error rate" for giving patients the wrong medical dosages was at 25 percent-the average is about five percent.

"We're talking about taking care of people, people brought here that have done a good job". That's why there is a criminal investigation underway.

The eight victims ranged in age from 70 to 99.

Outages had fatal consequences at a nursing home in Hollywood, Florida, north of Miami.

However, according to officials with Memorial Regional Hospital, some of the residents that were transferred there suffered respiratory distress, dehydration and other issues stemming from the heat.

Gillum said he found the incident disturbing and also called for a second look into the deaths.

He said investigators "have not ruled anything", including carbon monoxide from generators.

"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", Scott said.

Fifty-seven residents were moved from a suburban Fort Lauderdale assisted-living facility without power to two nearby homes where power had been restored.

That 2006 case involved a $15.4 million settlement.

Calls to the owner and other officials at the home were not immediately returned.

The president also told reporters that his priority remains on the middle class as the administration eyes tax reform on their to-do list of agenda setting measures.

And on Thursday in Florida, before his comments aboard Air Force One about climate change, Trump said the people of Florida experienced something "the likes of which we can say really say nobody's ever seen before".

Police said a criminal investigation is underway and they are not ruling anything out.

Josh Levy, the mayor of Hollywood, said he urged mayors and county commissioners across the state to urge residents to check on elderly neighbors in their communities.

The home said in a statement that the hurricane had knocked out a transformer that powered the AC.

At a news conference, Florida Power & Light, the state's largest utility, said it serviced portions of the care facility.

Hollywood Fire Rescue and police tell WSVN three people died at The Rehabilitation Center and three died on the way to the hospital, but it's unknown whether the deaths were related to the heat.

With all of Florida's major utility companies working overtime to restore power to millions of customers in the midst of one of the largest disaster blackouts in US history, the nursing home staff had to know that despite their requests, power wasn't likely to be restored immediately - especially given that hospitals and other critical infrastructure were higher on the priority list.
