Trump Tours Florida in Wake of Hurricane

  • President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence are in Florida after Hurricane Irma

Eight residents died at a Florida nursing home which has been without power since Hurricane Irma and the state governor vowed a full investigation Wednesday into what he called an "unfathomable" event.

But the NAACP Florida State Conference put out a statement saying it "demands justice" for the deaths and called for steps such as increased oversight and enforcement efforts by the state Agency for Health Care Administration and the Florida Department of Children and Families.

Broward County Mayor Barbara Sharief says three residents died at the scene, and three others died at a nearby hospital. Of the eight patient deaths, seven occurred Wednesday.

And when Hurricane Irma ramped up to a Category 5 monster in the Atlantic, Trump tweeted that the storm "Looks like the largest ever recorded in the Atlantic!" Three elderly residents were found dead on Wednesday inside the sweltering facility, which had been operating with little or no air conditioning, officials said.

President Trump on Thursday traveled to storm-ravaged Florida and applauded how "very few people" had died in Hurricane Irma - which has claimed almost 70 lives in the United States and across the Caribbean.

Police said they have opened an investigation into possible criminal negligence.

Some 4.2 million homes and businesses were still without power on Wednesday in Florida and neighboring states, down from a peak outage tally of 7.4 million customers on Monday.

"The Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills is responsible for the safety of their patients", Scott said. The association added that it is working with state officials to identify homes without power so that utility companies could prioritize those in greatest need.

Police were checking on more than 40 other nursing facilities in Hollywood, Kate Stein of member station WLRN tells NPR's Newscast unit.

Detailing the problems identified this week by the Agency for Health Care Administration, member station WLRN reports, "In its complaint, the healthcare agency said that on September 10 the rehab center 'became aware that its air conditioning equipment had ceased to operate effectively.'".

Around 100 people were evacuated from the building since.

A kitchen worker at the center told the Miami Herald that the facility "had power from a generator to cook meals, but no air conditioning".

Sanchez said officers have been assigned to check 42 assisted living facilities and nursing homes in Hollywood to "make sure they are in sufficient care of the elderly".

The Naples Municipal Airport also reported a gust of 142 miles per hour, near reports of 135mph gust and sustained winds of 93mph - the most powerful recorded gusts on the mainland. Florida Power & Light, reportedly claims, the center was not on the county's high priority power restoration list. The hospital's medical director of emergency services, Randy Katz, DO, told The New York Times most of the patients were treated for dehydration, respiratory distress and heat-related issues.
