Location: Honolulu, HI

As a mark of respect for the victims of the tragedy in Boston, Mass., Gov. Neil Abercrombie has ordered that all State of Hawaii flags at all state offices and agencies as well as the Hawaii National Guard are to be flown at half-staff alongside U.S. flags now through sunset April 20.

"Our thoughts are with the victims, families and many others impacted by the terrifying events that unfolded yesterday at the Boston Marathon," Gov. Abercrombie said. "We offer our support and our aloha to the people of Massachusetts during this difficult time."

President Barack Obama today ordered that flag of the United States shall be flown at half-staff at the White House and upon all public buildings and grounds, at all military posts and naval stations, and on all naval vessels of the Federal Government in the District of Columbia and throughout the United States and its Territories and possessions until sunset April 20, 2013. The President also directed that the flag shall be flown at half-staff for the same length of time at all United States embassies, legations, consular offices, and other facilities abroad, including all military facilities and naval vessels and stations.
