President Trump tours Irma damage faces another storm in Washington DC

"We're conducting a criminal investigation into the deaths that occurred here", Hollywood police chief Tomas Sanchez said. "I am outraged over the deaths of eight Floridians at the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills in Broward County and I am demanding answers as we furiously investigate this bad loss of life".

Three patients were dead inside the facility; as of press time five others had died after being evacuated. Another 42 nursing homes are being checked by police as precaution, and another 18 people at a nearby health facility have also been evacuated. "We're going to be with you tomorrow", Trump said.

Nursing home owner Jack Michel never replaced the system, Bichachi said.

"The recovery without air conditioning is the hardest part", said Joe Wallen.

Rehabilitation Center officials couldn't immediately be reached for comment.

The deaths may be due to the loss of the home's air-conditioning after Hurricane Irma struck Sunday, according to CNN affiliate WPLG.

As of noon on Friday, more 1,680,000 Florida customers were without power, 16 percent of the state's customers, according to state officials.

Prolonged power outages remains a risk for the elderly through the region, Sharief said.

WSVN-TV report that the nursing home did appear to have a back up generator, although it does not appear to have been working.

"Every call made to the Governor from facility management was referred to the Agency for Health Care Administration and the Florida Department of Health and quickly returned." said Scott's communications director John Tupps.

"What we've seen is something extremely tragic", Mr. Gould said. He said he's been calling Florida Power & Light for days to get it fixed.

Scott on Saturday ordered emergency rules requiring all assisted living facilities and nursing homes to obtain a generator within 60 days. He lauded the "GREAT first responders" and the "U.S. Coast Guard, FEMA etc." on Twitter before he arrived. The company met with officials in Broward County in early March, he said.

More than half of a large retirement community in Pembroke Pines, Florida, still had no electricity by Wednesday afternoon, leaving elderly residents stuck in rooms with no access to lifts.

Relatives who have family members in the facility have started to gather outside the two-story gray building that is situated among a cluster of medical facilities and hospitals.

"What do I know, but I hope this man right here, Rick Scott, runs for the Senate", Trump said in Fort Myers.

Much of Florida still reeling from Irma's impact.
