According to Hollywood police, eight residents from the Hollywood Nursing Home in Florida are died at the building which is just across the hospital, without air conditioning in the morning on Wednesday.

Authorities in Hollywood, where police have opened a criminal investigation of the deaths, said Wednesday that investigators had found that the nursing home still had some power.

An initial news release from the city of Hollywood said that three patients were found dead in the facility early Wednesday, while others were taken to the hospital and pronounced dead there.

The victims' identities were unknown.

In total, 115 people have since been evacuated from the home.

"Once we determined that we had multiple deaths at the facilities, and that the facilities are extremely hot, we made the decision to evacuate all of the patients", said City of Hollywood spokesperson Raelin Lohse-Storey. "Although the details of these reported deaths are still under investigation, this situation is unfathomable". Police say three patients died at the facility and three at a hospital.

The air conditioning was out, but Sanchez said it remained under investigation whether power was entirely cut.

Scott added that more than 4 million customers now have power, but there are still more than 2 million without it across the state.
