He visited parts of northeast Georgia and the coast, two of the areas hit hardest by the storm. He noted the number of downed trees and the power lines that came down with them.
He said there's no estimate for when power in the state will be back on for everyone.
"The volume of the downed power lines is just so huge that it’s going to take a while to get everybody restored,” Deal said.
