Dead After Evacuation of Florida Nursing Home: Mayor

5 Dead at Florida Nursing Home that Lost Power During Hurricane

Elsewhere in South Florida, other alarms were sounded for older residents. Authorities evacuated more than 100 other people from the facility, they said, including bringing some to nearby hospitals. Police evacuated 115 people from the facility, and several are in critical condition at hospitals.

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.

President Donald Trump was due to visit Florida on Thursday. More than 150 people were evacuated, many suffering from respiratory issues, dehydration and heat-related problems, according to Memorial Regional Hospital spokesman Randy Katz. Gallagher said it was the first time the facility admitted it had no power.

An initial news release from the city of Hollywood said that three patients were found dead in the facility early Wednesday, while others were taken to the hospital and pronounced dead there.

By the afternoon, five more had died.

A state official eventually said they found a generator and gas, but it was not needed: The power turned back on. He also said investigators will look into how many windows were open.

The death toll from Irma stood at 81, with several hard-hit Caribbean islands accounting for more than half the fatalities, and officials continued to assess damage inflicted by the second major hurricane to strike the USA mainland this year. She said Bobby Owens had been at the facility for more than 10 years. "I'm saving my money up and moving out of here", she said. "But nobody from the facility has told me anything yet".

The Broward Medical Examiner's Office confirmed Wednesday that Bobby Owens, 84; Manuel Mario Medieta, 96; Miguel Antonio Franco, 92; Estella Hendricks, 71; Gail Nova, 71; Carolyn Eatherly, 78; Betty Hibbard, 84; and Albertina Vega, 99, had died, the Sun Sentinel reported. He declined to say whether the electricity was entirely out at the facility or if only the air conditioning was out, saying that was still under investigation.

Nursing homes in Florida are required by state and federal law to file an emergency plan that includes evacuation plans for residents. County officials released documents showing that the Hollywood facility was in compliance with that regulation and that it held a hurricane drill with its staff in October.

Total insured losses from the storm are expected to run about $25 billion (about R329 billion), including $18 billion (about R237 billion) in the United States and $7 billion in the Caribbean, catastrophe modeler Karen Clark & Company estimated on Wednesday. At least six people in Florida died of apparent carbon monoxide poisoning from generators.

All across Florida and the American southeast, people have grappled with the aftermath of Irma, which slammed into the Sunshine State over the weekend and tore apart trees and buildings with slashing winds and pounding rain.
