Geane Mitchell, a nurse at the centre told the WSVN news channel, she was due to begin work at 7am, having been off for the last few days.

Irma, which decimated the Caribbean as a top-tier Category 5 hurricane before losing strength after repeated landfalls in the continental US, was downgraded to a tropical storm Monday.

The governor's office said "power restoration crews have been working around the clock" for what it called "the largest power restoration undertaking in history for a single state". Sharief confirmed during a news conference that three residents died at the center and two died at the hospital.

Lawyers John Leighton and Max Panof, of the Leighton Law Firm, say she died at the nursing home because she spent days without enough air conditioning following Hurricane Irma.

The Florida Health Care Association also released a statement calling the situation "a profound tragedy". As a precaution, Hollywood police officers were checking on the 42 other assisted-living facilities and nursing homes in the area.

Restoring power is still a top priority in Florida.
