Flying Half Mast in Arlington's Veterans Park

Why were the flags flying at half mast today in Arlington's Veterans Park? No one at the park knew. I thought the U.S. flag could be flown at half mast only at the orders of the President?

As you can see it is a windy, cloudy day here in Texas. We are building to a BIG Storm, which is supposed to hit by tomorrow morning.

I believe it was due to former Mayor Harold Patterson's death.

It might have something to do with the deaths of 5 men at a new power plant under contruction that exploded in Middletown Connecticut... I believer there may have been a man in the list of 5 who was from Texas.
