Some 4.3 million homes and businesses, or about 9 million people, were without power at midday Wednesday in Florida and nearby states.

"Although the details of these reported deaths are still under investigation, this situation is unfathomable", he said in a statement.

The hospital has set up a hotline, 954-265-1074, so that families of nursing home residents can check on their loved ones.

Police and fire crews began evacuating the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills on Wednesday morning.

"You see people immediately getting back to work to fix up their homes".

The overall death toll from the storm climbed to 81 on Wednesday, 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 US mainland this year. "The fact is that this facility never called 911", said Mara Gambineri, a spokeswoman for the department.

Cristina Bichachi, the former business development director at the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills, told the Associated Press that the air conditioning went on the fritz "many, many times" during the three years she worked there.

High temperatures were forecast to reach the upper 80s Fahrenheit (low 30s Celsius) in Florida's two biggest cities, Jacksonville and Miami, and the mid-80s F in Atlanta over the next week or so, according to meteorologists at AccuWeather. "When we approach her she wasn't really crying but tears were kind of coming, she says 'I can't breathe, I can't breathe Jean, '" Johnson said.

It was reported that a quarter of homes in the Florida Keys - a series of low-lying islands - were destroyed in the hurricane.

Records obtained by Stat show that the nursing home was cited twice by federal authorities for violating requirements over its backup power. Some are in critical condition, she said. Broward County Mayor Barbara Sharief said three died at the facility, while two others died after they were taken to Memorial Regional Hospital.

An adjacent building, Larkin Community Hospital, was also being evacuated.

The Florida Health Care Association called Wednesday's deaths a "profound tragedy within the larger tragedy of Hurricane Irma". Sanchez said precautionary checks would be done on Hollywood's 42 other nursing homes.

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

For the millions of people who are still without power across Florida, heat illness can be a concern.
