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?”
