photos - port - part 4

Beach type landing areas are created for equipment to come off of the barges. Without a working pier this is the solution to getting supplies from ships to the port.

This large container barge is next to the pier that is still standing and in the process of having the supports repaired by US Navy divers.

These are huge barges which have large heavy cranes on them.

In the front end of the port are some tug boats. They probably help in moving barges into position I think.

This is what the earthquake did to the supports of the pier. Rebar was snapped and supports snapped like toothpicks. The divers repair the supports one at a time.
