ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal has ordered state offices to stay closed on Wednesday.

Deal signed an executive order on Tuesday night barring employees from reporting to work unless they’re involved in the state’s emergency response to the storm.

A state of emergency covers 91 counties throughout Georgia and officials have said the storm is expected to lead to slippery roads and widespread power outages.
