Pearl Harbor Memorial Bridge shines red, white, and blue for the 77th anniversary of Pearl Harbor


To mark the 77th year since the Pearl Harbor attack, the Pear Harbor Memorial Bridge in New Haven has been lit up red, white, and blue on Friday. 

The special lighting is being done to mark the 77th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. 

Governor Dannel Malloy has ordered all flags to fly at half staff.

77 years ago today, the Japanese imperial Navy struck the Pear Harbor naval base in Hawaii in a surprise attack. 

More than 2,000 Americans were killed in the attack and many U.S. airplanes and battleships were destroyed.
