White House: Trump To Visit Florida Thursday In Wake Of Hurricane Irma

US President Donald Trump says devastation left by Hurricane Irma was far greater than anyone expected

He called the impacts a "real disaster" and said there's "much work do" but that Florida "will be rebuilt and will come back even better than before".

"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.

Larkin Community Hospital, which is adjacent to the retirement home, was also being evacuated.

The storm's death toll grew to at least 33 people in Florida after a woman died of suspected carbon monoxide poisoning from a generator in Palm Beach County, the Palm Beach Post newspaper reported.

Police launched a full investigation into the incident, with initial findings discovering the nursing home was without sufficient air conditioning and was using portable A/C units to keep the facility cool.

Police said they have sealed off the building and opened a criminal probe after the remaining nursing home patients were transferred to neighboring hospitals.

She said some of the 15,000 residents at Century Village were vulnerable and "we are concerned about their welfare". Three patients were found dead the facility and others were found there "in need of immediate transport", officials said.

Question me, not my son, says P Chidambaram
The CBI, on the other hand, rejected Karti's claim and maintained that the investigation was still on in this case. Chidambaram, including his son Karti Chidambaram in a malicious fashion, Surjewala said.


"We want to make sure we interview everybody and see what they did and what they didn't do to make a determination, was there any criminal elements here", said Hollywood Police Chief Tomas Sanchez.

We have heard the stories of survivors who drove through roads in flooded conditions and their vehicles left the roadway with the occupants of the auto drowning in deep ditches.

State investigators from the Florida Office of Attorney General were also at the scene, city officials said in a statement.

The nursing home did have a generator, but it is unclear if the generator was functional, WSVN reported.

But the NAACP Florida State Conference put out a statement saying it "demands justice" for the deaths and called for steps such as increased oversight and enforcement efforts by the state Agency for Health Care Administration and the Florida Department of Children and Families. About 2.6 million utility customers still were without power in the state Thursday morning, officials said. It was recently 85 degrees with 70% humidity there, according to the National Weather Service.

As David Halstead, the former director of Florida's Division of Emergency Management, wrote in an editorial on CNN's website before Irma hit, powerful storms leave danger in their wake.

Hollywood is located in southeast Florida between Miami and Fort Lauderdale.
