Halifax Museum of the Atlantic

Today, I made a donation to the Halifax Museum of the Atlantic, which I visited this morning. And I learned about the Halifax Explosion, in December 2017. One morning, two ships collided in the harbor. One ship was a munitions ship, loaded with petrochemicals, which caught fire. The ensuing explosion destroyed 1,630 homes and damaged 12,000 others. Over 1,900 died and 6,000 people were left without shelter.
