188 Peanutsonly The number just keeps going up. This is unfortunate. My local news said they are opening a criminal investigation.
106 VesperCat Every county in FL opened a special needs shelter for people with medical issues or had medical needs that required electricity (being on oxygen, breathing machines, etc). This is unacceptable.
33 Suckydog I remember summer of 1995, downtown Chicago, hundreds of people died because power outages, this can be a serious problem. http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/politics/chi-chicagodays-1995heat-story-story.html I lived in a building that luckily never lost power or had a brown out (there were power outages and brown outs all over the place because of the high demand for electricity.) We had to sublet at the end of summer because we built a home in the suburbs, first person to look at our place said "We'll take it", without looking at the entire apartment. We had the AC cranked up so the breeze hit you as soon as you walked in.
23 ClawOfTheWest What a terrible way to die
24 OneOfALifetime I just want to say it's fucking sickening the amount of people in the thread saying "Oh they were old they were going to die anyways". The sad part is I don't think they are trolls, I really think these people think this way. Really goes to show the true age of Reddit.
7 ohmongod This happened in France one summer not too long ago where a ton of old people died in the summer because of things like this.
19 postonrddt One report said their generator was being used for cooking. A fuse blew in the ac and wouldn't kick on. There are no windows in the is building? Or fans they could put in hallways and open the room doors and windows? Lack of ventilation is a common mistake in high heat and humidity.

3 edflyerssn007 This doesn't even surprise me. Skilled Nursing facilities are usually anything but.
4 CantDanceSober Doubt they had generators available after the power outage.
