State and federal regulations require nursing homes to be evacuated if it gets too hot inside. Many communities are still cleaning up or without power or air conditioning. Florida Power and Light Company estimated the west coast would have power restored by September 22, while the east coast would likely have power as soon as this weekend.

Florida Health Care Association Executive Director Emmett Reed said in a statement that the state's providers and the entire sector were mourning the residents. It went straight to voicemail.

Investigators and loved ones are now seeking answers after eight people died in relation to a Hollywood nursing home that lost power.

Tuesday, however, saw no change. Hurricane Irma has severely affected the power grids and power lines.

Another arrived at 4 a.m.

More than 100 patients at the nursing home were transferred to nearby branches of Memorial Regional Hospital, where they were given immediate treatment for their varied conditions.

A third 911 call came in for yet another patient transport - this time prompting the fire department to send more crews to the nursing home to investigate.

In total, 115 people have since been evacuated from the home.

The Rehabilitation Center of Hollywood Hills is pushing back against charges it let patients die.

A criminal investigation is now underway into what exactly happened Wednesday morning. "Because you know they're trying to make sure they have the power to take care of their citizens".

"We love the people of Florida and they went through something that, I guess, the likes of which we could really say nobody's ever seen before", he said.

The death toll in both hurricanes, though, is indeed far below what other major storms have inflicted on America.

"Protecting the lives of Floridians is my top priority, and that's why we have worked all week to help Floridians prepare and respond to Hurricane Irma", the governor added.

Gov. Scott announced Thursday the Center will no longer receive state Medicaid funds.

At no time did the facility report that conditions had become unsafe or that the health and safety of their patients was at risk.

At the time of the deaths at the Hollywood Hills nursing home, almost 150 other nursing homes were without power.

Southwest Florida was one of the areas of the state hardest hit by Hurricane Irma.

Attorneys John Leighton and Max Panoff are representing the family of Albertina Vega, 99, who was among the eight people who died this week after being without adequate air conditioning for days following Hurricane Irma.
