White House: Trump to visit Florida on Thursday

White House: Trump to visit Florida on Thursday

Several homes, businesses and facilities lost power after the deadly hurricane but the consequences at the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hill, which is a nursing home in Hollywood, Florida, were the most deadly.

"I am also asking available first responders to immediately check in with the healthcare facilities in their area to make sure nursing homes and assisted living facilities are able to keep their residents safe".

The nursing home, located in Hollywood, Florida, about 20 miles north of Miami, has been in the dark since Irma struck earlier in the week, officials said.

In Hollywood, the Rehabilitation Center said the hurricane had knocked out a transformer that powered the air conditioning.

Hurricane Irma has left 10 million people without power in Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas, after it destroyed parts of the Caribbean, where around 40 people died, although there is no definite toll as yet. Phone calls to the nursing home went unanswered Wednesday morning.

Scott added that more than 4 million customers now have power, but there are still more than 2 million without it across the state. Also, all nursing homes are supposed to let the power company know that they are critical facilities that are supposed to get top priority when the power goes out.

Florida residents who evacuated ahead of the storm faced lengthy traffic jams, meanwhile, as they returned to check out their homes after days in shelters or with friends or family. "They're too small", Trump said after the glove on his right hand ripped.

The facility, Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills in eastern Florida, has been cited twice for violating federal requirements relating to its backup power sources, according to records reviewed by Stat.

Criticism Against The Bullet Train Project Is A Tad Unfair
Only time will tell us whether the bullet train project is elitist or for the development of all Indians. Both the Congress and the Shiv Sena questioned the objective behind launching the train.

Three of those who died were in their 90s, including 99-year-old Albertina Vega.

"This is an inexcusable tragedy that frail patients would die of heat exhaustion without it being recognized and taking them to the hospital next door", Florida Senator Bill Nelson, a Democrat, said in a statement Wednesday.

After landing in Fort Myers, the President headed to a mobile home community for over 55s that was devastated by Irma - with piles of debris, furniture and branches now littering the area.

"I am absolutely heartbroken to learn of news reports of the deaths of multiple individuals in a nursing home in Broward County".

Trump says alongside Scott and other Florida officials that he knows "at a certain point it ends for you and we can't let it end".

Police said a criminal investigation is underway and they are not ruling anything out. They estimate that 150 out of the 700 long-term care facilities still do not have full power.

President Donald Trump is praising the recovery efforts in Florida before departing for the state to survey hurricane damage from Irma.

The governor said he has ordered a probe by state authorities.
