Cecilia and Miguel Antonio Franco died within a month of each other.

A Florida nursing home where a dozen patients died after Hurricane Irma knocked out power has closed and laid off its 245 employees, according to a notice to state officials.

Cecilia Franco, 90, and Francesca Andrade, 95, died from ailments suffered when the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills lost power September 10 during the hurricane's passage, Hollywood police spokeswoman Miranda Grossman said on Monday. Four more died after the sweltering facility was evacuated. The state advised managers "multiple times" to call 911 if such a situation arose - "Something they failed to do", the 159-page report said.

The governor also said that in calls between nursing home administrators and state officials, the center's staff didn't indicate that anyone was in danger.

Laid off were certified nursing assistants, licensed practical nurses, occupational or physical therapists, registered nurses, doctors, environmental or laundry workers, administrative assistants "and others who worked in activities, dietary aid, engineering and supplies", the report said.
