Hurricane Irma by the numbers

Officials in Daytona Beach have warned residents of new dangers as the southern Florida city remains without power

Eight people died at a nursing home when the hurricane knocked out power and the facility lost air conditioning.

Including the nursing home deaths, at least 26 people in Florida have died under Irma-related circumstances, and six more in SC and Georgia, many of them well after the storm passed.

Almost a week after Hurricane Irma walloped Florida, the recovery mission picked up momentum as more people had electricity and schools made plans to reopen.

"Dr. Jack Michel in 2006 settled claims after he and five others were accused of agreeing to send patients to his Miami hospital, Larkin Community, for unnecessary treatment, according to the Department of Justice".

The Voice is celebrating its 35th birthday this year.

Reached by phone on Thursday, Rosemary Cooper, a licensed practical nurse at the rehabilitation center, declined to discuss specifics about the case, citing the investigation.

Officials said the building has been without power since Hurricane Irma struck earlier this week. It said it has "flagged" facilities without power to the Agency for Health Care Administration so utilities can prioritize locations with the greatest needs.

The shocking news that eight people who were residents of the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills in Hollywood, Fla., died at the facility in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma has sparked many questions about how such a thing could happen.

Hollywood police later tweeted that they had evacuated 158 patients to local hospitals. Her mother operated the generator in the living room as the two slept in a bedroom, officials said.

"While our center did not lose power during the storm, it did lose one transformer that powers the air conditioning unit".

But state records revealed a variety of problems at the center. Information on the state Agency for Health Care Administration's website said the nursing home's current license was effective July 17 and expires July 16, 2019.

"People are just absolutely shocked that someone in the staff would not know enough that a frail, elderly person is dying of heat exhaustion and would at least know to dial 911. this is what is inexcusable", Nelson said. Broward County said the home alerted officials about the situation on Tuesday, but when asked if it had any medical needs or emergencies, it did not request help.

"And the images we're seeing out there - obviously awful losses in the Keys and flooding in Jacksonville - let's not forget about agriculture, a cornerstone of our economy", in Florida, said Sen.

"What do I know, but I hope this man right here, Rick Scott, runs for the Senate", Trump said in Fort Myers.

Hollywood Fire Rescue crews responded to the nursing home for a call at about 3 a.m. Wednesday regarding a patient who was reportedly in cardiac arrest.

The death toll from Hurricane Irma is at least 24 in the U.S. - that number includes three deaths in Puerto Rico and four deaths in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

"I am going to aggressively demand answers on how this tragic event took place", Scott said in a statement.

The nursing home has faced several safety violations and citations in recent years, including two for not following generator regulations in 2014 and 2016, according to CNN. "If they find that anyone wasn't acting in the best interests of their patients, we will hold them accountable to the fullest extent of the law", the governor said.

At Thursday's news conference, medical workers from an adjacent hospital who assisted in evacuating the center on Wednesday recounted a scene of chaos and stifling conditions as panicky staff scrambled to move overheated patients into a room where fans were blowing.
