Hollywood is a city in southern Broward County, Florida, United States, located between Fort Lauderdale and Miami. Founded in 1925, the city grew rapidly in the 1950s and 1960s, and is now the 12th-largest city in Florida. Hollywood is a principal city of the Miami metropolitan area, which was home to an estimated 6,012,331 people at the 2015 census. The average temperature is between 68 and 83 °F (20 and 28 °C), and the city has a population of 154,817 as of July 1, 2019. The city was named after Joseph Young, the first mayor, who spent millions of dollars on the construction of the city. After Young's death in 1934, Hollywood encountered other destructive hurricanes, and the stock market crashed with personal financial misfortunes. After the damage inflicted by Hurricane Irma in 2017, an initiative called Rebuild Florida was created by the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity to provide aid to citizens affected by the natural disaster. The program priorities low-income vulnerable residents, such as the disabled, the elderly and those families with children under five. The success of this program has various results across the city, with hundreds of citizens claiming they were left without help. In the aftermath of the hurricane, four nursing home staff were charged with negligence and counts of manslaughter for the deaths of 700 elderly nursing home residents who were exposed to poor conditions after the storm. The investigation found that some of the deaths weren't actually a result of the storm, but the poor conditions that they were exposed.
