15. An older, run-down neighborhood, and a couple trailer parks in the area :(

That area of town has a lot of North/East African immigrants and elderly working class that had been built up in the 1930's/1940's - lots of wood and stucco structures. It's also a spiderweb of narrow, winding streets through the ridges and arroyos at the edge of the mesa that is that area of the college area and Lemon Grove. It will be very confusing to evacuate or manage an emergency if there's a serious issue.

Our house is only three miles away, other side of I-94 by the 805. Clear if there is an issue, but we'd still experience any explosion. Luckily, we have newer double-pane windows if there is an explosion.
When I was 11 years old, during the bad old early 70's student radical movement, someone bombed the UW administration building that was just about the same distance and every window on that side of the student housing unit we were living was either blown in or seriously cracked - including my bedroom window.
