  • Hurricane Irma made landfall at the Florida Keys where authorities say a quarter of homes are gone

In the 36 hours prior to the first patient dying at The Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills, nursing home executives called Florida Gov. Rick Scott's cell phone asking for help getting their power back on after Hurricane Irma, CBS4 News has learned.

Sanchez, the police chief, said a criminal investigation had been launched.

Police responded and chose to evacuate.

"The suspicion is that these deaths should not have occurred", NPR's Jon Hamilton reports from the scene.

The Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills says it lost power during Irma, but utility company Florida Power & Light issued a statement to CBS Miami on Friday saying part of the facility had electricity.

Hurricane Irma was one of the most powerful Atlantic storms on record. The air condition company Airstron went in there, and they tried to fix it, but they couldn't.

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

"I'm very concerned. I'm like a family member to her", he said.

Police said they have opened a probe into possible criminal negligence. Some were from facilities nearby. The storm only knocked out power to the air conditioning system.

At a recovery center in Naples, Mr. Trump passed out bananas and pointed to a silver tin of hoagies-"Here's a nice one!"-as he mingled with residents and volunteers". "Every facility that is charged with caring for patients must take every action and precaution to keep their patients safe - especially patients that are in poor health".

Some were brought to Memorial Regional Hospital, just across the street from the nursing center, and were treated for for respiratory distress, dehydration and heat-related issues, said Dr.

As a precautionary measure, police checked 42 more nursing homes and assisted living facilities in the city of Hollywood, Sanchez said.

The nursing home also spoke to the emergency operations center in Tallahassee, which notified the nursing home that their FPL fix order would be "escalated".

An estimated 150 facilities out of the almost 700 in the state are now without full power services, the association said.

It is not yet clear whether the elderly residents died from heat exhaustion or another cause.

Days after Irma tore through Florida, residents are slowly returning to find ruins in some of the hardest-hit areas of the state. Several other residents are reported to be in critical condition.

"It appears that there's a pending lawsuit alleging negligence".

SHAPIRO: Paint a picture for me of what it was like in the facility when it was 110, 115 degrees with elderly, sick people.

At least 23 people died in Florida and nearby states, and destruction was widespread in the Keys, where Irma made initial USA landfall on Sunday and became the second major hurricane to strike the mainland this season.
