Rick Scott announced measures Saturday to protect the state's elderly population during emergencies, following a national outcry over the death of eight residents of a nursing home that lost power after Hurricane Irma.

The Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills in Hollywood, Fla., was evacuated on September 13, 2017. The home had been without power since Hurricane Irma. They found three people dead and evacuated 145 people to hospitals, many on stretchers or in wheelchairs, authorities said.

Administrators at the nursing home said they repeatedly called Florida Power & Light Co and state officials after a transformer powering the home's air conditioning system went out during the storm on Sunday.

The talks focused on a potential deal for Dreamers - young undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S.as kids and were offered protection from deportation under the Obama-era "Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals" policy. However, officials said they are anxious a new crisis could emerge when homeowners find their neighborhoods have no fuel, power, running water and other basic services. By that afternoon, five more had died. Others were treated for dehydration, breathing difficulties and other heat-related problems.

Investigators said they believe the six deaths were heat-related in the wake of Hurricane Irma. The centre said it plans to the fight the state's efforts to shut it down.

Police said they have opened a probe into possible criminal negligence.
