NJ Flags at Half-Staff For Oklahoma Tornado Victims

Gov. Chris Christie has ordered flags at all New Jersey state buildings to be flown at half-staff to mourn of the victims of the deadly Oklahoma tornado and the devastation it caused.

The flags will be lowered Wednesday.

Christie issued the directive in an executive order announced Tuesday afternoon.

Noting that New Jersey residents “have experienced firsthand the impact of natural disasters,” a reference to Superstorm Sandy, Christie said he took the action to “show unity” with the people of Oklahoma and “mourn their losses.”
