While Ron DeSantis’ wife and three children were at home, the Florida Governor’s Mansion, which is also his current residence, was struck by a falling tree as Hurricane Idalia passed through the state as a Category 3 storm.

On Wednesday morning, Hurricane Idalia tore through the Sunshine State, leaving at least two people dead, tens of thousands of homes without electricity, and dozens of communities under water.

Two hours after making landfall in Florida, the enormous storm was downgraded to a Category 2 storm.

The Governor’s Mansion is in Tallahassee, which was spared the worst of the storm.

The 50 mph winds of Hurricane Idalia, however, caused an oak tree to fall on the DeSantis family’s home, giving them quite the scare.

Florida’s First Lady Casey DeSantis posted on X, formerly known as Twitter, that “a 100-year-old oak tree fell on the Governor’s Mansion in Tallahassee while Mason, Madison, Mamie and I were home at the time, but thankfully no one was injured.”

“Everybody affected by the storm is in our thoughts and prayers,” she continued.
