In this Nov. 12, 2012 photo, fishermen work on their boat in the port of El Callao, Peru. Seismologists, engineers and civil defense officials agree that Lima is due for an earthquake but is acutely vulnerable and sorely unprepared. Lima's airport and seaport, the key entry points for international aid, could also be bottlenecks. Both are in Callao, which scientists expect to be scoured by a 20-foot (six-meter) tsunami if the quake is centered offshore, as forecast. (AP Photo/Rodrigo Abd)
