He told Fox News he isn't sure yet if she's one of the dead. As part of the licensure process, AHCA confirms that the facility's emergency plan has been submitted to local officials. "You're preparing for something that you really don't know how it's going to play out". This is a breaking story and will continue to be updated. She said the county could not elaborate as to the conditions of the five people who died, or what shape any other patients at the home are in.

Some residents were evacuated on early Sunday morning and some woke up feeling sick at the center, which had been without air conditioning, Broward County Mayor Barbara Sharief said.

As of Wednesday morning, a WSVN helicopter was above the scene where officials were continuing to evacuate people from the home. A kitchen worker told the Miami Herald that the nursing home was using its generator's power to cook food but not to power its air conditioning.

"They identified which facilities were to be critical top infrastructure facilities, this was not one of them", he said about the Hollywood Hills center.

The storm left millions without power across Florida.

"We need to make sure we're doing everything we can to keep our seniors safe during this hard time", he said. 'We've been calling and calling.

The victims' identities were unknown. Sharief explained that the causes of death was not immediately clear.

A total of 115 people were evacuated and taken to other facilities.

The nursing home did have a generator; however, it is unclear if the generator was functional.

Television footage showed rescue crews arriving at the facility shortly after 7.30am on Wednesday and patients sitting outside in wheelchairs. Patients were being transferred to nearby medical centers.

The nursing home, located in Hollywood, Florida, about 20 miles north of Miami, has been in the dark since Irma struck earlier in the week, officials said.

Michel was accused of receiving kickbacks for patient admissions in a Larkin fraud scheme and conspired to admit patients to the hospital for medically unnecessary treatment.

The 152-bed rehab center provides short-term rehabilitative services and long-term care, according to its website. "We take our heritage of being family-owned and operated, and translate it into an environment of loving, personalized care", the facility notes.

In the battered Florida Keys, meanwhile, county officials pushed back against a preliminary estimate from the Federal Emergency Management Agency that 25 percent of all homes in the Keys were destroyed and almost all the rest were heavily damaged. ABC News reported that 6.5 million accounts were without power by Monday afternoon, according to the Florida Division of Emergency Management.
