Tucker Carlson's South Florida home was in Hurricane Ian's destructive path




 

Hurricane Ian hit Fox News personality Tucker Carlson literally close to home yesterday.

In July 2020, at the height of the COVID pandemic, the TV personality bought a sweet home on Gasparilla Island, a barrier island that got massively pummeled during the "historic" storm.

"So, you hate to hype hurricanes, because it's just a staple of TV and everyone's kind of onto the scam," Carlson said the day before the monster hit, receiving a bit of Twitter backlash. "But there's a legitimately large hurricane barreling toward the Gulf Coast of Florida tonight."

The San Francisco native reportedly bought the 1960s era, three bedroom place, which includes pool, guesthouse and courtyard, in 2020 for $2.9 million.

Carlson, 53, has not yet commented on any damage to his subtropical digs. But he was right about one thing: Ian was "legitimately large."

As of Thursday afternoon, roughly 2 million homes were left without power while rescue crews scrambled to pull residents from the battered area, transformed into a disaster area, with rivers of water, wrecked homes, downed traffic lights and other dangerous debris.

At least two people were confirmed dead with that number expected to rise.
