Viewing Hours Extended

Library extending viewing hours

Mourners in California are getting more time to pay their final respects to former President Reagan. Thousands of people have been waiting for hours at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California, to view his flag-draped coffin.

The library initially said the viewing would end at 6 p.m Pacific time, but is now extending it until 10 p.m. People have to be in line for shuttle buses by 3 p.m. More than 40-thousand people have viewed the body as of this morning. The flood of mourners caused four-hour traffic delays on the Ronald Reagan Freeway. There were even longer waits for the shuttles.
