Some 3.1 million homes and businesses, representing close to one-third of the state's population, were without power on Thursday in Florida and neighbouring states.

"In compliance with state regulations, the Center did have a generator on standby in the event it would be needed to power life safety systems".

There, Mr Trump met residents and handed out food and water.

During meetings with officials Friday in the Keys, Gov. Rick Scott said he understands the frustration of residents but cautioned they could not return until it was safe.

"I am outraged over the deaths of eight Floridians at the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills in Broward County and I am demanding answers as we furiously investigate this bad loss of life", Scott said in a statement on Saturday. Well, nursing homes and medical facilities have priority in cases like this.

When asked whether police responded quickly enough to a distress call, Sanchez said that there is dispute about when exactly the call came in, though he estimated that it was about 6 a.m.

"We are devastated by these losses. Our staff continually checked on our residents' well-being-our most important concern-to ensure they were hydrated and as comfortable as possible".

The utility did not arrive until Wednesday after some patients began experiencing health emergencies, prompting evacuation of the center, according to a timeline provided by the nursing home.

"Like many places in South Florida, the nursing home has been without power since being blasted by tropical storm winds with hurricane gusts on the edge of Hurricane Irma".

A 34-second long video clip captured a couple in a room at The Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills in Hollywood. Three patients were found dead the facility and others were found there "in need of immediate transport", officials said. "Visually, you could see that they were sick", said Memorial Regional Hospital Dr.

Earlier in his one-day visit to Florida, Trump also lauded state and federal officials for their preparation and response to the hurricane. Police say three patients died at the facility and three at a hospital. There are 683 nursing homes in Florida with more than 84,000 beds, according to the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration, which licenses and regulates these facilities.

Officers are checking all of the other 42 assisted living facilities in Hollywood as a precaution, officials said.

Several nursing home administrators also said that prior to Irma's arrival, the governor gave the facility a cellphone number to contact him directly if there was a problem during the storm.

Katz said so many patients needed assistance that his hospital, which is just down the street, called in more than 50 doctors, nurses and other staffers under a mass casualty protocol.
