Flags at San Francisco City Hall and other city buildings will be lowered to half-staff from Friday through Sunday in honor of U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who has died at the age of 90.

Feinstein's Senate office staff on Friday morning confirmed the death of the trailblazing politician, who along with being the longest-serving woman senator in U.S. history was San Francisco's first woman mayor and first woman president of the city's Board of Supervisors.
