The police this morning around 06:30 cleared all of the tents out of the parks so the parks department could clean. According to King5 News they were told anyone who’s tent was taken is at the parks department office, and you can collect your tent and property from there.
As of 09:00 there have been 8 arrests, http://spdblotter.seattle.gov/2011/10/17/more-tents-removed-from-westlake-park/
