Description: Just before 10:20 p.m. on July 17th, 1944, the worst home front disaster of WWII, occurred at a Naval pier in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Five thousand tons of ammunition in ships being loaded by black sailors exploded, sending a blast more than 12,000 feet into the sky.

The explosion destroyed the pier, a train, and both ships, instantly killing everyone aboard (some 320 men).
