Mary's: carbon monoxide poisoning on the rise after Hurricane Irma

Police say that the 145 patients who were sent to Memorial Regional Hospital include four from Larkin Community Hospital Behavioral Health Services - a facility that shares a building with the Rehabilitation Center.

This morning.in the wake of Hurricane Irma growing outrage over the death of eight patients at this sweltering Florida nursing home.

"This situation is unfathomable", he said. "The grid doesn't know business from residential, neighborhood from neighborhood", said Rob Gould, Vice President, Chief Communications Officer of Florida Power and Light.

The five women and three men ranged in age from the 70s to 99.

Several people have died of carbon monoxide poisoning from electric generators. Prosecutors say that after he bought the hospital in 1998, Michel and others fraudulently increased the number of patients at the facility, along with their Medicare and Medicaid revenues, by bringing in patients from nursing homes and assisted-living facilities.

"We're conducting a criminal investigation into the deaths that occurred here", Sanchez said.

Six people are dead after an air-conditioning issue that forced the evacuation of a Hollywood nursing home, police said.

Let's count the ways Rudolph and Oklahoma State owned Pittsburgh
Instead, McCleskey combined for 12 catches for 262 yards and four touchdowns and Ateman had three receptions for 98 yards. The Oklahoma State Cowboys led 49-14 at halftime, putting up 21 points in the first quarter and 28 points in the second.

The death toll across the Caribbean stood at 38, AP reported. Three others died in hospital. Others were found in critical condition, some with trouble breathing, said Hollywood spokeswoman Raelin Story. In the lower Florida Keys, one of the worst hit areas, residents were still not allowed to return home Thursday. County officials released documents showing that the Hollywood facility was in compliance with that regulation and that it held a hurricane drill with its staff in October.

Florida Light and Power had yet to visit the site, despite being called repeatedly for several days to fix the air-conditioning. I mean nursing homes are supposed to have backup power and generators and have an emergency plan where they think about events like this. They were found by first responders answering an early morning emergency call. And Medicare inspectors have given this place below average ratings.

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

People's personal items and pieces of their home are strewn about carelessly, showing the unforgiving nature of a storm like Irma.

Across the peninsula in St. Petersburg, firefighters rescued two adults and two children from a burning, boarded-up home without power, local ABC affiliate WFLA reports. Utility officials warned it could take over a week for power to be fully restored.

In Coral Gables, an apartment building was evacuated after authorities said its lack of power made it unsafe for elderly tenants.

The military continues to pass out food, water and ice to people who did not evacuate for Irma. He said 32,000 homes and businesses in Hollywood were still without power.
