I was watching a thing on the goggle box last night about big explosions. Anyhoo, there was one in Halifax harbour, something like 200t TNT and 200t incediary, which went up with rather a big bang. The explosion + shockwave caused Halifax to be flattened. The harbour was "filled" with ships taking "stuff" over to help Britains war effort, of which many would have been sunk(It really was a big bang).

My question to the panel is- Are these ships still there? and are they divable?

Peter K,
I guess the description of "a really big bang" fits. The program said it was somewhere in the region of 4.5K tonnes of explosives.
