STEPHANIE KUO/KERA NEWS

The top local stories this afternoon from KERA News: The city of Dallas is starting to shut down Tent City, the homeless camp near downtown and Deep Ellum. The first section was closed earlier this week, and as of Wednesday, about 170 people were still in Tent City. 

Other stories this afternoon:
