Authorities are evacuating an assisted living facility in North Miami Beach.

According to WPLG, authorities evacuated 80 patients from the Krystal Bay Nursing and Rehabilitation Center Wednesday afternoon due to no power or air conditioning in the building.

The City of North Miami Beach is assisting with the evacuation of the patients from the West Dixie Highway facility.

WPLG reports that the building has not had power since Hurricane Irma hit South Florida.

Officials have not said where they transported the patients.

This evacuation comes just hours after six elderly residents died at a facility in Hollywood this morning.
