After an initial six counties were designated in a state of emergency on Wednesday and another 24 on Thursday, 64 have been added Friday afternoon. Sunday, the remaining 65 were added to the list.

Acting on a recommendation from the state's Emergency Operations Command and ahead of heavy rains, strong wind and potential flooding from Hurricane Irma, Sunday, Governor Nathan Deal expanded the emergency declaration to include an additional 65 counties.

The state of emergency now includes all 159 counties in Georgia. State government will be closed Monday and Tuesday for all employees except essential personnel.
