Trump praises Florida first responders for Irma effort

Sanchez said that officers and fire crews responded Wednesday morning to a call from the facility about some patients in need of critical care.

Most of the remaining outages were in Florida Power & Light's service area in the southern and eastern parts of the state.

Michael Benson, 65, of St. John in the US Virgin Islands, said he lost everything.

Aerial footage showed patients sitting outside in wheelchairs and others being taken out of the facility on stretchers. It is only realistic to say that some deaths can be expected during, and especially after.

"Irma was a beast", Colorado State University hurricane researcher Phil Klotzbach said simply, speaking to The Associated Press.

A warrant has been signed to begin searching the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills, which is affiliated with Larkin Community Hospital, and a criminal investigation is underway. Eight patients at the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills died this week after being exposed to the heat.

Statewide, 64 nursing homes were still waiting Thursday for full power, according to the Florida Health Care Association. Four victims died in the nursing home and detectives had to recover one body from a funeral home, city officials said. Scott on Saturday blamed the nursing home for what he described as its failure to protect life.

"I am absolutely heartbroken to learn of news reports of the deaths of multiple individuals in a nursing home in Broward Count, he said". Another 18 patients in an adjacent behavioral health facility also were evacuated.

Irma hit southwestern Florida Sunday morning as a Category 4 hurricane, the second most severe on the five-step Saffir-Simpson scale.

Now, Apple Watch will notify users when it detects an elevated heart rate when they don't appear to be active. The iPhone X's Touch ID has been replaced with Face ID, which Apple claims is more secure.

A woman said she visited her long-time friend, who later died, Betty Hibbard, at the nursing home on Tuesday.

- Some school districts in metro Atlanta and north Georgia have opted to keep their doors closed for a fourth day on Thursday due to damage and a lack of power in the wake of Irma.

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.

The calls to the emergency cellphone were then referred to two other agencies, the governor's office said.

Gov. Rick Scott said he had directed the state's health care administration and Department of Children in Families to open an investigation into the deaths.

As the Florida Keys continue to recover from Hurricane Irma, now the boats in the water pose a great danger.

Johnson added that if Hibbard had been at home, she would've called 911 but since this was a nursing home she said she didn't want to "overstep" and stayed out of their way. "This situation is unfathomable", he fumed in a statement.

"If they find that anyone wasn't acting in the best interests of the patients, we will hold them accountable to the fullest extent of the law", Scott said in a statement. At least one person could be seen in the video working to restore a home amid the wreckage.

The Associated Press reported that before the deaths at the nursing home, Irma was blamed for a combined 19 fatalities in Florida, Georgia and SC.
