Killer Molasses!

On January 15, 1919, a molasses tank in Boston exploded with great force and flooded the streets with a huge wave of molasses that killed 21 people, crumpled the steel support of an elevated train, and knocked over a fire station.

Oh my goodness! That is so strange, because I have photos from the 1940s of a truck carrying molasses that crashed into a house - you can see the stuff dripping down the outside walls :O I bought the photos because the accident took place in the tiny town in which I live (in Pennsylvania).

Who knew molasses was so great a threat?!
