President Trump declared a state of emergency in Georgia after the southern part of the state took a direct hit from Hurricane Michael on Wednesday night.
The president is expected to visit Georgia to survey the damage next week.
The hurricane was downgraded to a tropical storm when it reached Central Georgia after making landfall in Florida's panhandle on Wednesday evening.
An 11-year-old girl died when the storm tore through Southwest Georgia as a category 3 hurricane.
It took down trees and power lines all over Southwest Georgia, causing at least 127 accidents on Georgia's highways according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Utility crews are working to restore power to thousands of homes.
Atlanta was virtually unscathed by the storm.
