Irma: 8 dead in powerless Florida nursing home Updated: 2017-09-14 11:54:28 KST

Eight people in the U.S. state of Florida have died at a nursing home that lost power when Hurricane Irma rampaged through the region.
Police have opened a criminal investigation at the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills, where three elderly residents were found dead on-site and five later died in hospital.
More than 100 residents were evacuated from the facility on Wednesday as the building lost its air-conditioning.
The death toll from Hurricane Irma is now nearing 80, and about ten million people in Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas are still without power.
Eyes are now on Category One Hurricane Jose, which is expected to linger off the Atlantic coast through next week.
But, its unpredictable path is a cause for concern as it could move closer to the U.S. and the Bahamas.
