Two other patients were pronounced dead after being taken to a nearby hospital.

The total number of customers still out, representing about 9 million people in Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas, dipped from a peak of more than 7.8 million customers, or over 16 million people, on Monday.

A criminal investigation was underway, Hollywood police said.

"Once we determined we had multiple deaths at the facilities, and that the facilities are extremely hot we made the decision to evacuate all of the patients", said Raelin Storey, public affairs director for the City of Hollywood.

As of Wednesday morning, Florida Power and Light said 1.9 million of its customers were still without electricity, having restored service to 2.5 million out of 4.4 customers impacted by Irma. And at the 15,000-resident Century Village retirement community in Pembroke Pines, where there were also widespread outages, rescue workers went door to door to check on residents and bring ice, water and meals.

FPL posted on Twitter that residents on the west coast of Florida can expect power restoration by September 22 - 11 days after the storm hit Sarasota, though areas hit with tornadoes, flooding or extreme damage could take longer.

The Department of Corrections, which evacuated more than 12,000 inmates and on Thursday said some inmates will remain at alternative locations until road conditions improve and facilities can undergo necessary repairs, put its costs at $21.55 million.

"I am going to aggressively demand answers on how this tragic event took place", he said a statement.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott announced Thursday night that he directed the Agency for Health Care Administration to terminate the Hollywood Hills center as a provider for Medicaid, which helps low-income people receive health care.

Martin Scorsese Pens Tribute to Frank Vincent: "He Made It Look Easy"

Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez said about half of the county's traffic signals were out.

For Trump, the visit to Fort Myers and Naples along Florida's battered southwestern coast offered him the chance to see how people were coping and how the Federal Emergency Management Agency was responding.

"People who bag your groceries when you're on vacation - the bus drivers, hotel cleaners, cooks and dishwashers - they're already living beyond paycheck to paycheck", said Stephanie Kaple, who runs an organization that helps the homeless in the Keys.

By that afternoon, five more had died.

He said most of the patients admitted to hospital have been treated for respiratory distress, dehydration and heat- related issues. "We rode out that disgusting storm in a shower that I had reinforced after Hurricane Marilyn", Benson added.

The thing is, as of yesterday, it was reporting that everything was OK, that they were using portable air conditioners and fans. Robert Gould, the utility's chief communications officer, said he understood that certain parts of the facility had power. "We believe at this time they (the deaths) may be related to the loss of power in the storm".

Officials across Florida are warning people to keep generators outside their homes.

"The people who were working there worked hard to make a good outcome for our patients", she said.

Older people can be more susceptible to heat because their bodies do not adjust to temperatures as well as those of younger people.
