The order to abandon ship came after the second explosion and was carried out expeditiously.
Nevertheless, the tragedy claimed the lives of 7 1 sailors and injured 30 others. Gone But Never Forgotten.
The Navy withheld the names of the 5 6 missing men and the names of the injured because not all their families had been officially notified. Normally she carries about 15 tons of assorted ammunition, including depth bombs and smaller charges, torpedoes none on board and shells for her cannon. Only one-third of this amount was still aboard when the blast occurred. It was unofficially estimated here that these vessels held, all told, about 25, tons of explosives.
Tugs dragged these craft out of the dangers zone. Burning fragments from the Solar, hurled at tremendous force against freight cars on the pier, started other explosions. One car in a freight string, filled chiefly with depth charges, blew up and all but vanished in dust and smoke, scattering its parts in all directions. Three strings of cars were hauled shoreward by their locomotive crews, at great risk. No one seemed certain tonight what had caused the explosion, but what seemed like a possible explanation came from Jack Horne, fireman second class, of Charlotte, N.
He thought a piece of ammunition carried by Joe Stuchinski, seaman, of Baltimore might have done it. While he was holding it, it just went off. He must have bumped it against something, because those things go off when anything touches them. He was deafened, a few minor scratches showed on his chest when he got to the first-aid station and his dungarees were split. Metal-cased, weighing about sixty pounds, it is generally cylindrical, about thirty inches long and between four and five inches in diameter.

They and most of the other men aboard swarmed to the fire stations. Within less than a minute a second minor explosion in the forward magazine shook the craft.
Many were blinded by fuel oil sprayed into their faces by the blast. On shore the disaster sirens screamed and disaster units roared toward the piers. This blast seemed to blow out the flame that shot through the smoke of the earlier explosions. It tore the ship from her hawsers and shot her back, southward, almost yards, toward the beach end.
Civilians and Navy personnel on the concrete pier cowered under a rain of nuts, bolts, steel and iron fragments, slivered glass and great gun shields from the Solar that screamed past them. Powdered metal dust covered their heads and shoulders. Several were scorched and oil-smeared. They had only vague notions of what burned or cut them. Navy and Coast Guard tugs, backed by water-spewing fireboats, slid through the rising smoke to tow them bay ward, out of the rain of hot metal and screaming shell fragments.
Tugs pulled them bayward, too. Small craft, chiefly fifty-footers, swarmed around the burning Solar, meanwhile, picking injured sailors from the bay. Curiously, not all the ammunition on the Solar exploded. Her torpedoes and her pound depth charges, fortunately, already had been unloaded. The fireboats stood by, helping, and land fire crews poured tons of water, too, on the Solar and on near-by burning structures.
Parts of the pier were torn away, too, and burning oil sent waves of heat until the fire fighters quenched them. Naval officers at the depot expressed astonishment and gratitude for the swift response of rescue units and medical and Red Cross aid.
The Monmouth County Red Cross assembled its membership in record time and got all its rolling stock and other equipment to the station in ample time to be of service. Ambulances and more doctors, nurses and medical attendants than were needed swarmed into the depot from Fort Hancock, Raritan Arsenal and Monmouth County hospitals.
