Those in North Carolina and the surrounding areas are bracing for what should be a major weather event with Hurricane Florence set to hit later this week.

It’s expected to be one of those major hurricanes that uproots lives and changes communities throughout several states and regions.

Showing himself to be all about helping those in need, Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen is out here offering up his house as a place of residence for those most impacted by the storm.


A former standout at North Carolina A&T, Cohen’s old stomping grounds are going to be impacted big time by Florence. Now in Chicago, the running back obviously hasn’t forgotten about his roots.

But for those of you who are looking to take refuge at his pad, Cohen also noted that it’s at full capacity. This means that he’s indeed in the process of helping several people escape what could be a devastating situation. Good for you, Mr. Cohen. Good for you.
