Nursing home residents evacuated during Ida held in former pest control warehouse

01:41

After nearly 850 seniors were evacuated from Louisiana nursing homes to a warehouse during Hurricane Ida, seven people have died. Records show the previous tenant of that warehouse was a pest control company that had registered with the EPA for possessing a certain amount of toxic substances. The nursing homes’ licenses were revoked, and the owner declined NBC News’ request for an interview.
