Eight More Dead in Irma’s Aftermath
The tragedy is still unfolding. Eight patients died after a power outage caused by Hurricane Irma cut a southern Florida nursing home’s air conditioning. Police say the victims — part of the roughly two-dozen U.S. deaths blamed on the storm, which ravaged the region earlier this week — are believed to have died of heat-related causes. Meanwhile, millions of Florida residents remain without power, with utility companies warning it could take weeks before it’s all back. President Donald Trump is slated to visit the Sunshine State tomorrow to survey the damage.
