Georgia Governor Nathan Deal has extended the state of emergency he declared as Hurricane Michael made its way toward the state. 

Deal first announced the state of emergency on October 9 before Hurricane Michael made landfall in Florida. The 108 counties included in the declaration cover much of South and Central Georgia. 

The state of emergency will now run through November 6 as communities across Georgia recover.
