    (CNN) At least five people have died at a nursing home in Hollywood, Florida, Broward County Mayor Barbara Sharief said during a press conference Wednesday morning.

    CNN affiliate WPLG reported that the home's air-conditioning had been out since Hurricane Irma struck Sunday.

    Sharief said she did not have any details about the causes of death, and that authorities are investigating.

    Firefighters are helping evacuate about 100 people from the nursing home.

    I am so glad that my dad is safe in his assisted living program in West Michigan. My sister was supposed to go down to his condo to get all his stuff out this week, because she sold it. I'm not sure if she went, it's in Rotonda West, and that's near Fort Meyers, where Irene made landfall.

    Noonie, if you don't hear from your sister ...

    Rotonda West is in Charlotte County, try checking out Irma results from there on how his condo made out.

    Lotta negative vibes swirling-around an inconclusive story.

    The hospital was right across the street. Hospital-administration should've had a plan to bring the elderly over.

    The nursing-home should've had everyone on the first floor if upstairs-windows are sealed-shut.

    The home had a generator for kitchen only ?!?

    The 7-day forecast ahead of Irma... 86, 85, 86, then 75 and 77... and finally 89 and 93 on the two days after the hurricane, as high-pressure temps fill the void. Somebody should've prepared for the heat.

    But the story's still unfolding. We'll see what happened.

    I can't believe it isn't law that a facility like
    this must have a generator. Unbelievable...
