(San Diego) Homeless cleared out, city expands sidewalk washing

Hundreds of homeless people have been evicted from several downtown San Diego streets that once were lined with tents in recent days as the city ramps up efforts to curb a hepatitis A outbreak that has left 17 people dead.

While those people have been displaced, plans are underway to open the first city-sanctioned homeless camp in a parking lot off of 20th and B streets.

The city also began power-washing sidewalks with bleach in more neighborhoods on Wednesday as part of its multi-pronged effort to try to stop the hepatitis A outbreak.

As of Wednesday morning, rows of tents that had become a common sight around 17th and 16th streets near Imperial Avenue east of downtown were gone, and the whereabouts of the people who had lived in them was unclear.

1. I have always thought there should be a lot more homeless

here since the weather is so nice. It is much better than NY City. Of course the cost of living is so high many of the homeless actually can't find affordable housing and live in their cars while working 2 jobs.
