This weekend's "Eyewitness Newsmakers with Marc Brown" looks at how the Port of Los Angeles is dealing with a massive backlog of container ships waiting to offload their goods.

LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- The Port of Los Angeles continues to face a massive backup of container ships anchored offshore waiting to offload their goods.

The port has implemented some measures to try to reduce the backlog, and prioritize the items that are needed most.

How long could the backup last? And could this affect your holiday shopping?

Port Executive Director Gene Seroka spoke to Marc Brown for this weekend's "Eyewitness Newsmakers" to explain how the facility is addressing the problem.
