Map of the Devastation of the Blast
The Royal Society of Canada published a scientific report detailing the causes and effects of the Halifax Explosion. This map taken from the report shows the rings of devastation centred around the point where the Mont Blanc exploded near Pier 6. It has been observed that the Halifax Explosion was the greatest man-made explosion before the Atomic Era and the pattern of devastation is eerily similar to that of an atomic blast.
