ATLANTA - Gov. Nathan Deal has extended the state of emergency for two additional days, through Sunday night, to assure that all necessary resources are available for state agencies and local governments to clear roads and all other winter storm-related obstacles.

The State Patrol, meanwhile, Thursday night began towing vehicles left in areas where they are posing a public safety hazard; this applies only to the interstates. The state will cover the cost of towing but only in cases where the towing was directed by the state. Abandoned cars deemed to not pose a safety risk will remain for owner pickup through Sunday night.
