Family of Victim Sues Fla. Nursing Home Where 8 Died

4 Dead From Apparent Carbon Monoxide Poisoning After Irma

Meanwhile, a criminal investigation is underway after eight nursing home residents died in sweltering condtions after their facility lost air conditioning.

A news release from the city of Hollywood says that three patients were found dead in the facility early Wednesday, while others were taken to the hospital and pronounced dead there.

The total number of customers still out, representing about 9 million people in Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas, dipped from a peak of more than 7.8 million customers, or over 16 million people, on Monday.

The first of the eight patients who died at the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills had a do-not-resuscitate clause and died Tuesday, police say.

Dozens of the state's senior centers still lacked electricity in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, and several facilities were forced to evacuate.

In a state built on air conditioning, millions of Florida residents now want to know: When will the power come back on? At the 15,000-resident Century Village retirement community in Pembroke Pines, where there were also widespread outages, rescue workers went door to door in the 94-degree heat checking on residents and bringing ice, water and meals. They said it would take until September 22 to get electricity back to the majority of customers in southwest Florida.

The Oklahoma City Thunder unveiled their newest uniform, a solid navy alternate to their revamped originals. The "Statement" jersey is inspired by each squad's decision to " make bold statements " with their designs.

Don't allow your frustration with the power outages to translate into anger toward energy company employees; your household is only one of millions left without electricity following Irma.

"This is the most stressful situation I've lived in my life", Alvarez said.

Attempts by Reuters to reach an official of the for-profit Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills home by phone and email were unsuccessful.

Mr. Trump was scheduled on Thursday to fly first to Fort Myers, Florida, and then to Naples, where he will visit some of the areas damaged by Irma. More than 40 died in the Caribbean. "Generally, we are treating dehydration, heat exhaustion and severe respiratory conditions, and we do have some critical patients". CEO Jacob Solomon said the group encouraged people to evacuate before the storm if they could, but now they're focused on helping them in their homes. However, when she showed up to work, paramedics were barring the doors and telling her she could not enter. Jon reports: "As of Tuesday, [the facility] was reporting that everything was OK, that they were using portable air conditioners and fans". Robert Gould, the utility's chief communications officer, said he understood that certain parts of the facility had power.

At the time of the deaths at the Hollywood Hills nursing home, almost 150 other nursing homes were without power. The nursing home remains without power due to Irma. Police are going to the 42 other assisted living facilities in the area to check on those other residents. "And there are so many older people here with different physical problems that I think they should make this a priority to get the power back". "Someone let the ball drop very, very far", Kenneth Nova said by phone from his home in Winter Haven. Her daughter Madeleine Alvarez said they ultimately heeded firefighters' isntructions, despite doctors warning of her mother's fragile state.
