Iowa, Nebraska governors order flags flown at half-staff

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — The governors of Iowa and Nebraska have ordered flags lowered to half-staff at state buildings to honor the victims of the nightclub massacre in Thousand Oaks, California.

Authorities say a gunman and 12 other people died in the attack Wednesday night.

Orders from Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds and Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts were issued Thursday in conjunction with President Donald Trump’s order to lower all U.S. flags to half-staff through sunset Saturday.

Individuals, businesses, schools, municipalities, counties and other government subdivisions are encouraged to fly the flags at half-staff for the same length of time.
