(KBSI) – Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear ordered flags at all state office buildings be lowered to half-staff in honor of Kentuckians lost to or impacted by the historic Eastern Kentucky flooding events that began July 26.

Flags at state office buildings should be lowered to half-staff beginning at sunrise Tuesday, Aug. 2, and remain so until sundown Monday, Aug. 8.

Gov. Beshear encourages individuals, businesses and organizations throughout Kentucky to join in this tribute.

The governor also asked Kentuckians to light their homes and businesses in green – the color of compassion – in honor of the flood victims: “Let’s pull out those green lights again and let the people of Eastern Kentucky know we love them.”
