Where does Tom Brady live in Florida?
In December 2020, Tom Brady and his then-wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen, bought a $17 million house in Indian Creek Island, a private island in Miami that's also known as "Billionaire's Bunker." They were married from 2009 to fall 2022.
Brady, 45, has seven Super Bowl rings, the most touchdown passes and wins, in the regular season and playoffs, ever by a single player. He's largely considered the greatest of all time in football. In 2019, Brady left the New England Patriots for a two-year, $50 million deal to play quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The 42-year-old Bundchen, one of the highest paid models in the world, is a Brazilian supermodel, author, environmental activist and former Victoria's Secret angel.
Brady and Bundchen moved to Florida in 2020. A year later, Brady won his seventh Super Bowl ring with Tampa Bay.
The former couple are parents to their two children, Benjamin and Vivian. Brady also has a son, Jack, with his ex, actress Bridget Moynahan ("Blue Bloods," "John Wick" film series).
Tom Brady announced his retirement near Indian Creek
In a selfie video, Tom Brady, the GOAT of football, announced his (second) retirement from the NFL from a beach in Surfside in North Miami, which is close to Indian Creek Village. The location of the retirement announcement became a hot topic when someone collected sand from the beach where Brady filmed his selfie video, placed it in a Mason jar, and then put it up for auction. The owner started the bidding at $677 in honor of the total of passing and rushing touchdowns Brady scored in his 23-year career.
For Florida's hurricane season, what do we know about Indian Creek?
Indian Creek is in Zone B, which means it's at greatest risk for storm surge for Category 2 and higher storms, according to miamidade.gov: Planning zones deal strictly with storm surge, which is the greatest threat to life and property from a hurricane. It occurs when water from the ocean is pushed on shore by the force of tropical storms or hurricanes. This is the primary reason Miami-Dade County residents are asked to evacuate before a hurricane hits. A Storm Surge Planning Zone is an area that could potentially be affected by a storm surge of 1 1/2 feet or higher during a hurricane. Evacuation decisions are heavily predicated on storm surge planning. Upon identification of a threat, each zone (or portions of a zone) will be evacuated depending on the hurricane’s track and projected storm surge, independent of the hurricane's category.
