President tours damage meets victims

Eight elderly patients died after being left inside a stifling south Florida nursing home that lost power during Hurricane Irma, officials said on Wednesday, prompting a criminal investigation that has compounded a mounting loss of life from the storm.

Sen. Lauren Book, a Plantation Democrat, filed the measure (SB 284) on Friday afternoon.

And according to to the recent reports, eight people have died from sweltering Nursing home in Florida which occurred because the hospital was devoid of power for many days. And authorities say another dozen people were treated for carbon monoxide on Tuesday in Polk and Brevard counties. According to nursing home officials, FPL said they would have crews dispatched the next morning. Book, elected a year ago, is also the Senate's Democratic Leader pro tempore. "We know one thing is that our dad passed because of whatever happened there", said Franco.

"Kristin and I are saddened by this news and send our deepest sympathies to the victim's family and friends", Governor Cooper said. Local 10 says Gov. Rick Scott ordered the Agency for Health Care Administration to issue an emergency moratorium for the nursing.

The governor's spokeswoman, Lauren Schenone, confirmed that the calls did take place and said that caregivers were instructed to dial 911 if they felt their patients were unsafe.

"At no time did the facility report that conditions had become risky or that the health and safety of their patients was at risk", the statement says.

Mr Trump has promised to return to Florida "numerous times" as thousands of people begin the painstaking task of rebuilding their homes - adding that Irma's destruction was on a scale "nobody has seen before".

Chunks of big city Miami are in the dark so is rural Glades County where Irma knocked out electricity to 99 percent of customers.

In general, Florida requires nursing homes to maintain a "safe" temperature of about 80 degrees, in addition to three days' worth of backup power and emergency supplies. A complete list is here.

Rescue teams and medical staff who helped evacuate residents from the nursing home this week said that the building was extremely hot, with staff trying to lower temperatures with portable fans.

Of assisted living facilities, 193 were on generators, 1,978 had power, 182 reported being closed and 177 reported post-storm evacuations.

Millions in Florida remain without power but the lights are continuing to come on across the state. Careful consideration was given to how Trump can visit the disaster zone and meet with first responders without getting in the way of recovery efforts.

In the Keys, Irma tore apart houses, flattened mobile homes and pushed boats onto the highway linking the archipelago, prompting authorities to largely shut down access to the islands.
