Social 5: Halifax Explosion

In Social 5 we have been discussing natural (and other) disasters in Canada’s history, including:

  • The Saguenay Floods
  • “The Squeeze” in coal mines
  • Ft McMurray Forest Fires
  • Montreal Ice Storm
  • Hurricane Hazel
  • Frank Slide
  • and others

Today is the 100th anniversary of the Halifax Explosion–the largest non-nuclear man-made explosion. It was devastating.

The CBC has a gorgeous interactive on this topic (that Social 20 also shared).
