One person died at the Rehabilitation Center in Hollywood Hills

Five people are dead after an incident at a Hollywood, Florida, nursing home involving air conditioning issues. Sharief said there are no details about the cause of the deaths.

Five people have died at a Florida nursing home which has been without power since Hurricane Irma, local television reported on Wednesday.

Hollywood, Florida police said the Rehabilitation Center of Hollywood Hills is being evacuated due to cooling issues.

Broward County Mayor Barbara Sharief confirmed the deaths Wednesday morning during a news conference. Authorities said other people at the facility were being evacuated to other locations.

Footage from the scene on Wednesday morning showed patients being rolled out of the nursing home on stretchers and taken to Memorial Regional Hospital. This has cut air conditioning to scores of Floridians, and it poses an acute danger for the particularly young or old in a state known for its sweltering temperatures.

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