Between the explosions and the pandemic, 2020 is 1917 all over again...…..
It's a tragedy yet the modern capturing of what happened in Beirut tells us about what the Halifax Explosion would have been like. As far as I know there is no video of the Halifax Explosion itself, and there are only a few pictures of the cloud.
