On the morning of December 6, 1917 there was a huge explosion on the Halifax Harbor. 2 ships, one carrying lots of explosives, collided with another and exploded.
The actual amount of deaths is unknown but around 1600 were killed immediately and 9000 were injured. 1630 homes were destroyed and 12000 damaged. Millions of people were left homeless or without insufficient shelter.
Clearing debris and rebuilding homes started roughly 6 weeks after the explosion. The Restoration Department brought in 2200 workers and local construction hired 1500 men to help rebuild. Halifax had a bell built in remembrance of the explosion.
