Decision to reopen Florida Keys after Irma was difficult, officials say

Irma, which ranked as one of the most powerful Atlantic storms on record before striking the us mainland as a Category 4 hurricane on September 10, killed at least 84 people.

The account the nursing home executives provided to the Washington Post offers new details of the deteriorating conditions inside the facility.

But what nursing home staff did to ensure the residents' welfare is being looked at as part of the criminal investigation, according to CBS12.

A total of eight others died in Georgia and the Carolinas. "As of Tuesday, [the facility] was reporting that everything was OK, that they were using portable air conditioners and fans". Three residents had already passed away by the time responders arrived and three more died while being transported to Memorial Healthcare System facilities.

More than 6 million people were evacuated from their homes in Florida, and they have slowly begun to return, even as roadways remain littered with debris, homes lack electricity and traffic signals have gone dark.

Temperatures on Tuesday in Hollywood reached 32°C according to the National Weather Service.

A caseworker named Ed, who declined to give his last name, came to the facility Wednesday morning to check on his 80-year-old dementia patient.

Amber Mickles, who was looking for her great-grandmother, aged 94, told the New York Post: "Imagine the heat, I am 29 and I can't take it and for them to have to sit through is awful". "What do I know but I hope this man right here. runs for the Senate", he said.

Three of the victims were found dead at the center.

Johnson added that if Hibbard had been at home, she would've called 911 but since this was a nursing home she said she didn't want to "overstep" and stayed out of their way.

Oaxaca is still struggling to recover after it bore the brunt of the damage from an 8.2 magnitude quake that struck Mexico only last Thursday, leaving 96 people dead. Another person, who tried to get out of the home, was found dead on the front lawn, while four others from inside the home were taken to a nearby hospital.

The answer, it seems, depends on whether the question includes the dreaded "double c" term: climate change.

The other five died at or on the way to the hospital, police said.

An official confirmed to ABC News that a visit by the president to the U.S. Virgin Islands, which was also hit by the hurricane, is a possibility, and said that if it does occur, it wouldn't happen until next week at the earliest.

With millions of people in Florida still lacking power, officials are urging those who need a break from the heat to visit cooling centers and drink water.

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

Irma hit Florida about two weeks after Hurricane Harvey plowed into Houston, killing about 60 and causing some $180 billion in damage, mostly from flooding.

At least 37 people were killed in the Caribbean.

On Friday, Mariners Hospital became the first medical facility in the Keys to open and 17 percent of people in the Key West area and 65 percent of people in the rest of the Keys have power. Officials say it could take several years to rebuild.
