Although ample warning had been given by authorities, a number of homeless were displaced and have now scattered across the city. A fencing company moved in right behind the city’s workers, digging postholes, and erecting chain link fencing in sections. Using a front loader, unclaimed possessions were taken away and disposed of over the course of three hours, leaving many people standing about on the street with nowhere to go.
