June 6, 1944: Artificial Harbors Pave  Way for Normandy Invasion... Two harbors were built and operational within 3 days of the invasion: Mulberry A for the Americans at Omaha Beach and Mulberry B serving the British and Canadians at Arromanches. A heavy storm destroyed the American harbor on June 19 but Mulberry B remained in use for 8 months. In the first 100 days following D-Day, they landed over 2.5 million men, 500,000 vehicles and 4 million tons of supplies for the Battle of Normandy.
