The city has stripped Occupy Wall Street protesters of their power. …

“They made an announcement on a bullhorn saying: ‘We are here to take the generators, could you please bring them up to us on the corner of Broadway and Liberty Street’,” said James Bennett, a member of the information working group.

When no one from Occupy Wall Street surrendered the generators, more than 20 uniformed FDNY and NYPD officials entered the park to seize them, witnesses said.

The protesters say five generators were seized in total, including one which was biodiesel and ran on used vegetable oil.

The city says they removed six generators and about a dozen canisters of gasoline.

Occupy Wall Street say several of the canisters were empty, some were full of vegetable oil and one contained gasoline.

Weather report tonight is expecting lows of 43.

Tomorrow its expected to rain all day, with snow over night.

And lastly, how long will all their tech gadgets last before needing recharging? And how well will candle power recharge an Iphone?
