        On the morning of Dec. 6, , a Norwegian captain was steering the SS Imo out of the harbor at Halifax, Nova Scotia. The ship bore a banner that read BELGIAN RELIEF, and was on the way to deliver humanitarian supplies to war-torn Europe. Just before 9 a.m., it collided with the SS Mont-Blanc, a merchant steamer bound for Bordeaux. Sparks flew, setting fire to fuel spilled. In , there was an explosion in Halifax, Nova Scotia's harbor. Two ships had collided, one of which was laden with munitions intended for use in World War I, and when it blew up, it was the largest man-made explosion in history until the Trinity atomic bomb tests.4/5.
