The outbreak of the war brought Halifax back to prominence.As the Royal Canadian Navy had virtually no seaworthy ships of its own, the Royal Navy assumed responsibility for maintaining Atlantic trade routes by re-adopting Halifax as its North American base of operations.The Halifax Explosion was a maritime disaster in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, which happened on the morning of 6 December 1917.

Across the harbour, in Dartmouth, there was also widespread damage.Mackey gave a short blast of his ship's signal whistle to indicate that he had the right of way but was met with two short blasts from Imo, indicating that the approaching vessel would not yield its position.The captain ordered Mont-Blanc to halt her engines and angle slightly to starboard, closer to the Dartmouth side of the Narrows.He let out another single blast of his whistle, hoping the other vessel would likewise move to starboard but was again met with a double-blast in negation.Both ships had cut their engines by this point, but their momentum carried them right on top of each other at slow speed.
