Pearl Harbor - Attacked in Drydock
During the attack on Pearl Harbor, Shaw, in drydock, took three hits: two bombs through the forward machine gun platform, and one through the port wing of the bridge. Fires spread rapidly through the ship and after all fire fighting facilities were exhausted, the order was given to abandon ship. ... Efforts to flood the dock were only partially successful and, shortly afterward, Shaw's forward magazine blew up.
