The order may be applicable to the entire state or may be limited to the county or counties directly affected by the disaster. The order may be effective for up to ninety (90) days, and the order may be extended for such additional periods of ninety (90) days or less as the Supreme Court may determine is appropriate. A copy of any order issued under this rule shall be provided to the Chairs of the House and Senate Judiciary Committees.
