History
As the United States made preparations for the possibility of war from 1939 through the fall of 1941, traffic through ports on the Pacific coast became extremely heavy. After the attack on Pearl Harbor, there was a very real fear of Japanese attack or even invasion and in fact there were Japanese air raids, sub attacks and balloon bomb attacks off the West Coast during WWII.
