Flags going to half-staff for mudslide victims

OLYMPIA — State agencies will lower flags on or outside their buildings to half-staff Tuesday to honor victims of the Oso mudslide, and keep them lowered through next Tuesday.

Gov. Jay Inslee ordered the flag-lowering Monday afternoon for all state agencies and asked other governments, businesses and citizens to join the state. A formal ceremony on the Capitol campus is scheduled for noon Tuesday.

The March 22 slide that brought mud and debris crashing down on State Route 530 and the town of Oso left 36 confirmed dead and another seven remain listed as missing.
