Hurricane Isaac Destroys Home Of MSNBC Host Melissa Harris-Perry

A New Orleans home recently purchased by MSNBC weekend host Melissa Harris-Perry has been destroyed by Hurricane Isaac.

Harris-Perry tweeted a picture of the house, which is almost completely destroyed save for the front facade. The house was originally devastated by Hurricane Katrina, and Harris-Perry and her husband were hoping to fix it up and make it livable again.

Harris-Perry is a professor at Tulane University in New Orleans during the week, commuting to New York on the weekend for her MSNBC program. Her efforts to restore the home were featured on MSNBC just three days earlier.
