TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- On the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Maria making landfall in Puerto Rico, Florida Governor Rick Scott has ordered flags to be flown at half-staff.

The directive calls for U.S. and Florida flags to be lowered at noon Thursday and remain there until sunset Thursday.

The act is intended as a tribute to those who lost their lives in the devastating hurricane.
