Around 5.4 million people are now without power after Irma ripped through Florida. A nursing home spokesperson said that a number of its residents had been having respiratory issues.

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

Another 18 patients in a neighboring behavioral wellbeing office are additionally being emptied, Story said.

Widespread power outages: Most of the city doesn't have power, officials said. That includes a 57-year-old man struck by a tree limb during the storm in Calhoun Falls; a 54-year-old man who died in a mobile home because of carbon monoxide poisoning while a generator was running; and a man who died in a vehicle crash in Richland County.

The latter figure doesn't include the nursing home deaths, which police said were under investigation.
