CNN									SOURCE CNN

The Rehabilitation Center told the state in a September 27 letter it didn't report the layoffs sooner "due to unforeseen business circumstances that occurred after the impact of Hurricane Irma", the Sun Sentinel quoted the letter as saying.

Franco's husband, 93-year-old Miguel Franco, also died after the tragedy.

Two more patients who lived inside a stifling Florida nursing home that lost its air conditioning during Hurricane Irma have died, bringing the total to 14, authorities said Monday.

A 2015 analysis found the combined health and climate benefits of the plan totalled $33 billion a year. Obama's EPA administrator, Gina McCarthy, called the proposal "just plain backwards".

Franco lived only 26 days after her husband of 61 years, Miguel Antonio Franco, died along with seven other residents in the first run of deaths. Cecilia Franco, one of the residents evacuated hours after residents began dying, was described by family lawyers as being in serious condition.

NBC 6 in Miami is reporting that a family attorney said Cecilia Franco, 90, has passed away.

The laid-off employees include dozens of nurses, physical therapists, doctors, administrative assistants and others, according to the September 27 letter.

"This facility is failing to take responsibility for the fact that they delayed calling 911 and made the decision not to evacuate their patients to one of the largest hospitals in Florida, which is directly across the street", Scott said in a statement last month.
