Dangers linger as FL recovery picks up momentum
Jennifer Kay and Timothy Reynolds, in a Sept. 15, 2017  ABC News (via AP) post:

Nearly a week after Hurricane Irma walloped Florida, the recovery mission picked up momentum as more people had electricity and schools made plans to reopen.

According to the article:

Dangers linger especially in the form of noxious fumes from generators. At least 36 people have died in the U.S. in Irma-related incidents. Most U.S. fatalities occurred in Florida. Elderly residents are most vulnerable in the post-storm environment. Eight people died at the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills. These deaths are believed to be heat-related. Governor Rick Scott has directed AHCA to terminate that facility's Medicaid provider status. 1.9 million homes and businesses were without power including 64 nursing homes.
