Pearl Harbor Attack - Battleship Row
During the Pearl Harbor attack at 0805 a bomb exploded below decks in California, setting off an antiaircraft ammunition magazine and killing 50 men. A second bomb ruptured her bow plates. ... Despite valiant efforts to keep her afloat the in-rushing water could not be isolated and the ship settled into the mud with only her superstructure remaining above the surface. When the action ended, 98 of her crew were lost and 61 wounded.
