Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis directed all state flags to be at half-staff for Pulse Remembrance Day.
Three years ago Wednesday, 49 people were killed in a shooting at Pulse, an LGBTQ nightclub in Orlando. Fifty-three others were injured.
It was one of the deadliest shootings in U.S. history.
DeSantis also asked for residents around the state to pause for a moment of silence at 9 a.m. Wednesday to remember the victims.
Outside Florida and the U.S., more than 600 churches are set to ring their bells 49 times starting at noon. A ceremony is planned for 7 p.m. outside the now-closed club, which has been turned into a memorial and museum.
