SEATTLE — As hundreds of businesspeople and volunteers spent Sunday cleaning up the damage from two nights of rioting, there was a palpable sense of resolve to get past this latest setback to a downtown business community that has seen more than its share of adversity.

But there was also anger that city and police officials had allowed the rioting to spiral out of control, as well as fear the weekend's destruction could make recovery even more difficult for businesses already wounded by the pandemic shutdown.
