Trump traveling to storm-ravaged Florida Thursday

At least 6 dead after Florida nursing home left with no A/C from Irma Florida deaths in sweltering nursing home show post-disaster perils

Trump said that "the individual rate coming down will be substantial for the middle class", adding those are the Americans he aims to "take care of". Authorities have not ruled anything out, including carbon monoxide poisoning from generators.

Police said they have opened a probe into possible criminal negligence. Scott also said he would ask first responders to check on other nursing homes and assisted living facilities in the area.

"It's a sad state of affairs", the police chief said. Florida Gov. Rick Scott has ordered an "immediate moratorium" to prevent it from receiving any patients; officials are also checking on other assisted-care facilities and evacuating them if they've lost power.

Six people are dead after an air-conditioning issue that forced the evacuation of a Hollywood nursing home, police said. The total death toll stood Thursday at 61, 26 of which occurred in Florida.

Another 18 patients in an adjacent behavioral health facility are also being evacuated, Story said. Dozens of hospital workers established a command center outside, giving red wristbands to patients with critical, life-threatening conditions, and yellow and green ones to those in better shape.

Three passed on at the nursing home, and three others kicked the bucket in the wake of being transported to Memorial Healthcare System offices, city authorities said. 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.

Trump, who was in and out of Florida in about three hours, got an aerial view of the water-deluged homes along the southwestern coast from his helicopter, then drove in his motorcade along streets lined with felled trees, darkened traffic lights, and shuttered stores on his way to a mobile home community hit hard by the storm.

Was the center's backup generator capable of powering the air conditioning system?

Early Wednesday morning the nursing home sent out its first 911 call, with one patient in cardiac arrest. Its "overall rating", which includes staffing, fire safety and health inspections, was listed as "below average".

Schools in some areas made plans to welcome back students.

Older people can be more susceptible to heat because their bodies do not adjust to temperatures as well as those of younger people.

The storm left around 40 people dead in the Caribbean before churning east and pounding Florida.

As of 2016, Florida had about 680 nursing homes. An estimated 25 percent of homes in the Keys were destroyed, while around 90 percent had some kind of damage, according to estimates by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

What are the actions taken by officials?

The number of people in shelters fell to under 13,000.

"These people are basically prisoners in their own homes", said Pembroke Pines City Manager Charlie Dodge. "We worked with them".
