Irma knocks out power to about 7.3 million
Television footage showed rescue crews arriving at the facility shortly after 7.30am on Wednesday and patients sitting outside in wheelchairs.
Raelin Story, a Broward County spokesperson, said fire rescue operatives arrived at the home to find the facilities sweltering hot, leaving numerous elderly patients unable to breathe. The deaths at the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills were believed to be heat-related. Several phone calls went to them, and they were all ignored.
An adjacent building, Larkin Community Hospital, was also evacuated. "There will be an investigation here and we will get to the bottom of it".
On Wednesday, 115 residents were evacuated from the #nursing home because their air conditioning was broken down due to the storm.
All the patients were taken to area hospitals, including Memorial Regional Hospital.

"There are more electrical people in this state, I think, than ever accumulated anywhere in the world", the president said, referring to the scores of fix teams that have poured in from several states.
Irma is expected to sap demand for fuel for a time, Goldman Sachs analysts said in a note on Monday, but they cautioned that supply could remain strained because of refining capacity offline after Hurricane Harvey, which hit Texas two weeks ago.
CNN's reporting makes it clear the nursing home wasn't even aware that people were dead and dying in their own facility. She said her sister had been in this rehabilitation center for 10 years, and here's what she told us.
The case was settled in 2006 for $15.4 million.
The Agency for Health Care Administration and the Department of Children and Families have now launched investigations into the facility, and one relative of a longtime resident of the nursing home says she hopes the owners are stopped from ever allowing this to happen again. Sanchez also said investigators will look into how many windows were open. Broward County said the home alerted officials Tuesday that it had lost power, but when asked if it had any medical needs or emergencies, it did not request help. Sanchez said authorities are now conducting inspections of 42 assisted living facilities in Hollywood.
Josh Levy, the mayor of Hollywood, said he urged mayors and county commissioners across the state to urge residents to check on elderly neighbors in their communities.
"You want to come back to power", he said.
Irma, which made landfall Sunday morning in the Florida Keys as a Category Four hurricane, had triggered orders for more than six million people to flee to safety, one of the biggest evacuations in U.S. history. Before the day was over, eight residents lay dead. Three others died in hospital.
He said the facility had immediately contacted Florida Power & Light on when repairs might be made to restore electricity. The number of people in shelters fell to under 13,000.
