Street Count finds 2,826 homeless humans

An annual count of homeless people in Seattle and other parts of King County early Friday found a slight rise in the unsheltered population from a year ago, with significant increases in the South County.

Volunteers counted 2,826 people sleeping in vehicles, structures and doorways and under overpasses, among other areas. Read more from the Seattle Post Intelligencer here, and from the Seattle King County Coalition on Homelessness here.
