Five dead at Florida nursing home: TV

AFP  |  Miami 

Five people have died at a nursing home which has been without power since Hurricane Irma, local television reported today.

Mayor Barbara Sharief was quoted by WSVN TV as saying that three people died at the nursing home in Hollywood, north of Miami, and two more after they were taken to a hospital.

Some 120 residents of the facility have been evacuated "due to intense heat and no power," WSVN said.

The deaths, if confirmed as storm-related, would take the death toll in from the hurricane to at least 17.
