    Devastating images of the densely populated area adjacent to the port. How much more suffering can a country’s people endure? Should a similar event occur at the Port of Los Angeles, thousands of Los Angelenos living near to the port would also be left homeless. Port authorities worldwide should be vigilant about the danger of explosive chemicals stored at the port.
