Have you ever heard of the The Great #Boston Molasses Flood of 1919?
The 25-ft.-high, 35 mph wave with 2,300,000 gallons #molasses rushed through and devastated the city's crowded and densely populated #NorthEnd. By sunset, the sticky #tsunami had killed 21 people, and injured 150.
If you're familiar with the phrase “slow as molasses,” it’s hard to make sense of the flood. Dr. Nicole Sharp, a science communicator and an expert in #fluiddynamics, said that when she heard the 35-mph number, she was surprised. “One of my first questions was, is that number plausible?”
See her analysis and more archival photos of the disaster via the link in our bio.
