Homeless Camp Found Beneath I-37 Overpass

CORPUS CHRISTI - At the same time road crews worked to clear a jackknifed tanker truck on I-37, police were looking down the overpass at a tent city erected below.

There were at least 4 tents at the site this morning along Krill Street.

The people living there are lucky no debris from the damaged guardrail or the tanker truck came down on top of their temporary homes.

Back in 2011, police cleared out a similar camp constructed of plywood. It took a cleanup effort from the state to clean up all the feces left behind at the site.

Right down the street from the site is the Food Bank of Corpus Christi. Tonight, you'll hear from workers there who say they've had to deal with the homeless using their water hoses and even sleeping in their trucks.
