Description: The ruined hull of the Wilson B. Keene sits in the harbor after the explosions. The right side of the deck is tilted toward the dock and is partially submerged. Debris covers the water around the ship. Piers and docks on the other side of the slip are destroyed. On the right side, a group of rescue workers is working between the ship and the badly damaged warehouse next to it.
