KY governor orders state flags to be lowered to half-staff

FRANKFORT, KY — Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin has directed that all Kentucky State flags be lowered to half-staff in support of the Marshall County community.

Bevin asked that they stay at half-staff until sunset, Tuesday, January 30.

In a tweet Bevin said, “May this serve as a visual reminder to all of us that we must come together in love and solidarity.”

We are wanting to gather photos of flags at half-staff from across the Local 6 area. Feel free to add your photo to the gallery in this story.
