FERGUSON, Mo. (KMOV.com) – The state of emergency Gov. Nixon put in place in November is scheduled to come to an end Wednesday.

Nixon declared a state of emergency a week before the grand jury announcement was made in the death of Michael Brown.

Following the grand jury announcement, at least 25 businesses were torched, looted or damaged and dozens of people were arrested.

Nixon said he felt “very blessed there was no loss of life” during the unrest in Ferguson.

When News 4 asked Nixon if he would extend the state of emergency in the area he said the emergency response was “winding down.”
