Morrison Bridge lit in colors of French flag

PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

The Morrison Bridge has its own way of honoring the victims of Friday's attacks in Paris.

The lights illuminating the side of the bridge were changed to blue, white, and red to represent the French flag. The county said the bridge would remain lit in those colors until Nov. 19.

Many well-known monuments around the world including the Sydney Opera House, Brazil’s Christ the Redeemer and New York’s One World Trade Center are lit in similar fashions to show support for the citizens of France.  

More than 120 people were killed by ISIS extremists in a series of coordinated attacks in Paris on Friday.
