Nursing homes and assisted living facilities in Florida will now be required to have power generators under new rules signed by Gov. Rick Scott.

The rules require senior living facilities to install generators and fuel to power air-conditioning systems. Lawmakers passed the legislation after 12 residents of a Hollywood nursing home died last summer during power outages in the days after Hurricane Irma passed over South Florida.

Facilities have until July 1 to comply.
