Charlotte Hornets owner Michael Jordan is urging the team’s fans to donate to relief funds in response to the impact of Hurricane Florence.
“It’s truly devastating for me to see the damage that Hurricane Florence is doing to my beloved home state of North Carolina and to the surrounding areas,” Jordan said in a statement released by the Hornets Friday. “The recovery effort will be massive and it will take a long time to repair the damage and for families to get back on their feet.”
Jordan grew up in coastal Wilmington, where Florence reached landfall early Friday morning. Flooding has already been massive up and down the Carolinas coast.
