The historical drama moved production from Louisiana to Georgia for its second season after  Louisiana, in a budget crunch, capped its film-industry tax credits, my colleague Rodney Ho reported this summer. It’s set in Georgia and focused on a group of determined slaves attempting to escape servitude via the Underground Railroad.

Deadline reports that filming is on hold for a few days to let the storm pass, and should start up again next week.
