Thiokol

The Thiokol factory explosion is a largely forgotten tragedy. Survivors want to change that.

Jannie Everette stood up from her desk in Camden County High School and felt the earth shake. Miles away, a fire at the Thiokol munitions factory just outside of Woodbine triggered a chain reaction of blazes, culminating with an explosion that filled the sky with flames. In those first terrifying moments on February 3, 1971, Jannie had no idea if her mother, who worked at Thiokol, was alive or dead.
