Today is the 94th anniversary of the Great Molasses Flood in Boston.

On January 15, 1919, a tank holding over 2 million gallons of molasses burst, sending a 30-foot wave of molasses down the street. 21 people and several horses were killed, and many structures were damaged. Molasses was waist-deep in areas.

Local tradition says that on a warm day, you can still smell molasses in the North End.
