Occupy St. Louis protesters prepare for cold

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Occupy St. Louis protesters camping out in a downtown park are bracing for a new problem — cold weather.

KMOX Radio reports that many protesters living in tents in Kiener Plaza are using electric heaters to keep them warm. Highs earlier this week were in the mid-70s in St. Louis, but the weather took a colder turn on Thursday, with overnight lows in the 30s now becoming the norm.

Protester Brad Veltry says 30 to 40 people are committed to maintaining a presence in Kiener Plaza, even when freezing weather arrives.
